( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

That's only one of them, the default palette used by VGA cards. But there's another one, the one used by vt100 terminals and internally by linux. That one has the red and blue bits swapped, like 0=black, 1=red, 2=green, 3=yellow, 4=blue etc. I know this because this second scheme is used by the \e]P palette changer escape sequence. (This is btw another proof why this is not the real color/number correspondence: that's only the deafult palette, you can change it to whatever you like. I've rebound magenta to orange once to display Rubik's cube patterns nicely.) The translation table between the rgb and bgr scheme is color_table in /linux/drivers/char/console.c.

Update: see also Re: What is the Perl Color?.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
