    graphics - drawing,

    I want to know what kind of functionality I can use for drawing shape without use of graphics adapter (Card), I mean I use like asm to draw on display or do it in C. I don't mean only drawing lines with the chars in ncurses, plz, say about it in *nix, Freebsd.



    Thanks!

    I think /dev/fb represents the slab of memory known as the Frame Buffer.
    Google

    Do you have a good reason for going in at such a low level?
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.

    I mean when using the system that has not any known gpu, like what was in DOS, and using CPU, not GPU.
    For reasrching!


    Thanks!

    should search.

    I think /dev/fb is more linux specific, seeing some other things for freebsd. don't know if svgalib can do the same, but seems no.
