vga_setpage - set the 64K SVGA page number


#include <vga.h>
void vga_setpage(int page);


Usually SVGA cards have more than the 64K memory which suffice for an ordinary VGA. However, the memory window mapped at vga_getgraphmem(3) is only 64K bytes large. vga_setpage() selects the page-th 64K memory chunk to be visible at position vga_getgraphmem(3).
The fun(6) and vgatest(6) show the basic use of this function.


This manual page was edited by Michael Weller <>. The exact source of the referenced function as well as of the original documentation is unknown.
It is very likely that both are at least to some extent are due to Harm Hanemaayer <>.
Occasionally this might be wrong. I hereby asked to be excused by the original author and will happily accept any additions or corrections to this first version of the svgalib manual.
