NAME

Convert::Color::XTerm - indexed colors used by XTerm

SYNOPSIS

Directly:

 use Convert::Color::XTerm;

 my $red = Convert::Color::XTerm->new( 1 );

Via Convert::Color:

 use Convert::Color;

 my $cyan = Convert::Color->new( 'xterm:14' );

DESCRIPTION

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.

  • 232-255: 24 greyscale ramp.

CONSTRUCTOR

$color = Convert::Color::XTerm->new( $index )

Returns a new object to represent the color at that index.

METHODS

$index = $color->index

The index of the XTerm color.
