enable_triple_buffer - Man Page

Enables triple buffering. Allegro game programming library.


#include <allegro.h>

int enable_triple_buffer();


If the GFX_CAN_TRIPLE_BUFFER bit of the gfx_capabilities field is not  set, you can attempt to enable it by calling this function. In particular  if you are running in mode-X in a clean DOS environment, this routine  will enable the timer retrace simulator, which will activate the triple  buffering functions.
