mode13 is a framework that combines the ease and directness of framebuffer graphics with the power
of the C# programming language. The graphics primitives are modelled roughly after those offered by QBASIC, the
definitive hobbyist's language of the previous decade, but are extended to support 24-bit truecolour imaging.
With the minimal synchronization that is required, .NET Framework GUI components can be seamlessly integrated with the
framebuffer. Both paged and nonpaged modes of operation are supported, and for applications that don't need to maintain
any particular framerates, buffer transfers can be entirely automated.
mode13 is an ideal environment for experimentation, as well as a convenient tool for developing
certain kinds of user control for integration into existing GUI systems.
