Controlling non-graphical color displays with setcolor
is a simple utility that enables you to control
the colors used on the display screen.
Both foreground and background colors can be
set independently in a range of 16 colors.
setcolor can also set the reverse video and graphics
character colors. (The setcolor command
usually has no effect on monochrome displays or terminals.)
The following colors are available:
blue magenta brown black
lt_blue lt_magenta yellow gray
cyan white green red
lt_cyan hi_white lt_green lt_red
To display these colors, simply invoke setcolor without options.
The sections that follow explain the options for using these colors.
