);

Description

aa_init(3)                 Library Functions Manual                 aa_init(3)



NAME
       aa_init - open the output display for AA-lib.

SYNOPSIS
       #include <aalib.h>

       aa_context *aa_init
       (
            const struct aa_driver *driver,
            const struct aa_hardware_params *defparams,
            const void *driverdata
       );

PARAMETERS
       const struct aa_driver *driver
              Driver  you  want  to  use.  Available drivers are listed in the
              NULL terminated aa_drivers array.

       const struct aa_hardware_params *defparams
              Hardware parameters you want.  Use aa_defparams for default val-
              ues.

       const void *driverdata
              This pointer is passed dirrectly to driver used to specify addi-
              tional driver dependent parameters.

DESCRIPTION
       This is the most primitive AA-lib initialization function.  Allows bet-
       ter  control  over the process than the easier to use aa_autoinit func-
       tion.

       Every AA-lib program ought to have call to aa_parseoptions before first
       call to aa_init.

RETURNS
       Pointer to new AA-lib context or NULL if failed.
