       display-vcsa - Display using Linux virtual console text device


       display-vcsa : [ [-noinput] | [ [-nokbd] [-nomouse] ] ] [-ascii]
                        [-physz=<sizex>,<sizey>[dpi]] [-shade] [<vcsa device>]


       Uses  the  Linux  /dev/vcsa*  devices  to  render  text  modes onto the


       -nokbd Do not open any libraries for keyboard input.

              Do not open any libraries for mouse input.

              Same as both -nokbd and -nomouse.

       -ascii The -ascii option limits the color mapping to only  using  ASCII
              characters.   The  default mode uses IBM special characters (the
              solid block mainly, and others when using -shade).

       -shade The -shade option turns on shading mode, which changes the color
              mapping  so  that  it chooses characters which emulate a shading
              effect.  This makes a big improvement if using (some  might  say
              abusing :) the vcsa target for graphical purposes.

              This option will provide a physical screen size for applications
              which wish to remain resolution independent.  sizex,  sizey  are
              the  x,y  size of the screen in millimeters, unless the optional
              dpi string is affixed, in which case, they represent  resolution
              in dots-per-inch.

       vcsa device
              The  filename  of the device file, defaulting to /dev/vcsa which
              draws on the current virtual console.
