    Cool Text && Double Buffering

    Hi!

    With my program I'm printing a lot of text on the screen. And it must be a fast print out. My question is, if I would implement a double buffering code for displaying my texts, would be that print out a lot faster than the function printf or not?

    DOS: printf() works by the use of interrupts, thus is slow. Try to access the Video RAM straight (located at 0xB800), this is much faster.
