I am trying to find out if it is possible at all to save and restore the
location of the text mode console cursor across graphics modes. Ie: we
switch the console to graphics mode and re-program the hardware, and
then need to restore it again at the end. While in graphics mode we may
well end up actually running in text mode and re-programming the text
mode cursor position, so would like to save and restore the cursor
position across the graphics mode operation.
Presently I cannot figure out a way to do this, so we simply clear the
screen on exit from graphics mode. I would prefer to restore the screen
back to the original state. Does anyone know how to save the console
cursor position? I know how to set it, but I can't figure out how to
