3   o  Colour does not work with all backends and all terminals. I tested
4      many terminal emulators and tried to summarise which combinations
5      worked properly and which ones did not.
6
7   o  In an XTerm terminal, the following shell commands output all possible
8      foreground/background combinations:
9
10      for fgpre in "" '\e[0;1m'; do for fg in 0 4 2 6 1 5 3 7; do
11        for bgpre in 4 10; do
12          echo -ne "$fgpre"'\e[3'$fg'm'
13          for bg in 0 4 2 6 1 5 3 7; do echo -ne '\e['$bgpre$bg'm# '; done
14          echo -ne '\e[0;0m '
15        done
16        echo ''
17      done; echo ''; done
