Convert::Color::XTerm - indexed colors used by XTerm
my $red = Convert::Color::XTerm->new( 1 );
my $cyan = Convert::Color->new( 'xterm:14' );
This subclass of Convert::Color::RGB8 provides lookup of the colors that xterm uses by default. Note that the module is not intelligent enough to actually parse the XTerm configuration on a machine, nor to query a running terminal for its actual colors. It simply implements the colors that are present as defaults in the XTerm source code.
It implements the complete 256-color model in XTerm. This range consists of:
0-7: The basic VGA colors, dark intensity. 7 is a "dark" white, i.e. a light grey.
8-15: The basic VGA colors, light intensity. 8 represents a "light" black, i.e. a dark grey.
16-231: A 6x6x6 RGB color cube.
Since version 0.06: This can also be specified as rgb(R,G,B) where each of R, G and B can be 0 to 5, or 0% to 100%.
232-255: 24 greyscale ramp.
Since version 0.06: This can also be specified as grey(GREY), where GREY is 0 to 23, or 0% to 100%.
$color = Convert::Color::XTerm->new( $index )
Returns a new object to represent the color at that index.
$index = $color->index
The index of the XTerm color.
