       speedtest - tests the speed of memory access under svgalib


       Video memory speed tester. Selects the given mode and makes linear screen accesses. Prints the overall run time
       of the test and deduces the speed with which the CPU can transfer data to the cards memory.

       The demo gives a list of modes supported and prompts your for an integer indentifying the mode to test.

       This demo is part of svgalib and can be found in the demos/ subdirectory of the original svgalib  distribution.
       However, it is not installed in the system by default, s.t. it is unclear where you can find it if your svgalib
       was installed by some linux distribution. Even then, when you have the demo on your system, you probably  won't
       have the sources s.t. it is only of limited use for you.

       In  case  of  any such problem, simply get an svgalib distribution from the net. You even don't need to install
       it. Just make in the demos/ subdirecty. As of this writing, svgalib-1.2.12.tar.gz is the latest version and can
       be    retrieved   by   ftp   from   at   /pub/Linux/libs/graphics   and   at
       /pub/linux/sources/libs which will most probably be mirrored by a site close to you.

       This manual page was edited by Michael Weller <>. The exact source  of  the  refer-
       enced demo 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.
