Color Escape Sequences

Use these escape sequences to change colors of texts on a color xterm. The table below shows values and their actions. Use the simple scripts below as examples of how to make use of these characteristics.


In sh, use this script:
esc=`echo -e '\e'`
color="${esc}[31;47m"
normal="${esc}[0m"
echo "${color}Color Test: here are the results${normal}"



In perl, use this script:
$esc = "\e";
$color = $esc . "[31;47m";
$normal = $esc . "[0m";
print $color . "Color Test: here are the results$normal\n";
