utility to test color capabilities of terminal
DescriptionMost terminals are capable of displaying 16 colors; 8 colors and 2 different brightness values, some (like xterm) can display more, even 256 colors. The program automatically detects 8, 16, 88, 256 color capabilities (via ncurses) and displays the appropriate color charts. Program can display the colors as blocks or 2d cubes optionally with color values overlaid in int or hex values, it can show the full rgb text string and show the display with a vertical (default) or horizontal orientation. In addition to the color charts it can also convert between 256 and 88 color values. This can be useful when converting various terminals like between urxvt and xterm-256. The goal of this program was to provide the functionality of all the various Perl and sh scripts in one place with some bells and whistles.
