textcolors - set the colors used by a xwsh window
textcolors text [page bold-intensity cursor-page selection-text
selection-page cursor-text half-intensity]
Textcolors is used to set the various colors used by a xwsh window. When
no arguments are given, textcolors will query xwsh for the current
settings and report them. The values reported will be in hexadecimal.
When one or more arguments are given (up to 8), xwsh uses the argument to
set a specific color. The color arguments are either a hexadecimal
number (starts with a #), or a name. Textcolors will also allow color
indices for backwards compatibility.
textcolors #eaeaea #00247f #00ff00 #ffff00
This will give xwsh white text on a deep blue background. The bold
color will be green and the cursor page color will be yellow. The
other colors will remain as they were. Note that the #'s will
probably need to be backslashed if your shell treats them as
If run after the above command, this will change the text color to
red. The other colors will remain as they were.
textcolors black white red green
This will give xwsh black text on a white background. The bold
color will be red and the cursor page color will be green. The
other colors will remain as they were.
The escape sequences used by this version of textcolors will not work
with older versions of xwsh. Nor will this textcolors work with the IRIS
3000 series terminal.
