DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     getmonitor	returns	the type of the	current	video output format. The
     possible return values are:

     HZ30      30Hz interlaced monitor

     HZ30_SG   30HZ noninterlaced with sync on green monitor

     HZ50      50Hz noninterlaced monitor

     HZ60      60Hz noninterlaced monitor

     HZ70      70Hz noninterlaced monitor

     HZ72      72Hz noninterlaced monitor

     HZ76      76Hz noninterlaced monitor

     IRIS3K    60Hz (1024x768 visible) noninterlaced video format, if the
	       video hardware supports it

     NTSC      NTSC monitor

     PAL       PAL or SECAM monitor

     STR_RECT  monitor in stereo mode

     SGI_VIDEO_FORMAT_OTHER    [Toc]    [Back]
	       an video	output format other than those explicitly defined

     getothermonitor, setmonitor, setvideo

     This routine has been superseded by the functions that are	part of	the X
     extension XSGIvc(3) for those hardware architectures that natively
     support OpenGL.

     This routine is available only in immediate mode.

     The symbolic return values	mentioned above	are defined in <gl/get.h>.

     This function returns the value set previously by setmonitor.  It does
     not actually test the hardware.  Because Iris Entry does not support
     setmonitor	the value returned by getmonitor is always HZ60.  Iris Elan
     and Extreme support HZ50, HZ60, HZ72, NTSC, PAL and STR_RECT monitor
