Since an X server that uses the block-fill command for drawing
patterns is not the fastest thing you could be a witness of, I came up
with a new set of questions for all of you:
1. How can I use the newport stipple mode registers and the 32-bit
stipple pattern register to draw thingies in the screen?
2. If you have any documentation on what the operations for the
drawmode0 register are, I would appreciate a copy of it
(actually, I would appreciate the whole doc :-)
3. How can I load the color pallete on the newport? I have the
feeling that the newport supports an 8-bit+pallete mode and a
24-bit true-color mode, which leds to the next question.
4. How can I command the newport to draw on the 8 bit plane or to
draw on the 24-bit plane? That is, assuming I haven't been
smoking chemicals and that there really are 8 and 24 bit planes.
