I program in C and assembly, but always did heavy stuff in the DOS platform. Now I
want to write and port some programs I wrote to Linux, but I have some questions:
a) Can I write directly to video memory? If yes, what are the addresses of text
and VGA memory in Linux? If not, what's the fastest way to write in the text
b) how do graphic modes work in Linux? What are them, how to use them?
c) is there a list of Linux' interruptions? Are they the same of DOS
d) what are the differences of file input/output in Linux?
e) is there a text introducing linux specific programming?
f) Any advices? :)
