Vmode is a small C program I wrote to help X386 and XFree86 users create
mode definitions for their video displays.  The program is quite simple,
but I have found it to be very useful and wanted to share it with the rest
of the Linux community.  It's based entirely on "The Hitchhiker's Guide to
X386/XFree86 Video Timing (or, Tweaking your Monitor for Fun and Profit)"
by Eric Raymond, et. al.  I plan to contact Pat, the Slackware guy to see
if he would like to include it in a later Slackware distribution as part
of the XF86Config set-up scripts, but I wanted to get some feedback from
the people on the net first.

The files are on sunsite.unc.edu in /pub/Linux/Incoming (for now):


All of the documentation is contained in the .c file.  Please feel free to
contact me if you have any questions.
