DJGPP is always in protected mode, but you probably
wanted to ask something else about graphics. What I
did with DJGPP last time was use VESA with the nice
int 10 interface calls, allocates a handle for the
linear frame buffer, and then uses that as a large
array of bytes / shortints / ints / whatever :-)


All of the data generated in your IT infrastructure is seriously valuable.
Why? It contains a definitive record of application performance, security 
threats, fraudulent activity, and more. Splunk takes this data and makes 
sense of it. IT sense. And common sense.
