    Command:

    restorepalette

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           restorepalette [filename]
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           restorepalette  without  arguments  sets the standard VGA palette. This
           can be useful if it is somehow messed up.
    
           With a filename argument a custom palette can be loaded (feature  added
           by Charles Blake <chuckb@alice.wonderland.caltech.edu>).
    
           This  allow  a  user  to  set up a file that looks like this one (These
           color map definitions are the same as the default VGA ones.   Alter  to
           suite  personal  tastes).  The  first column contains the number of the
           color to set, then follow three integers in range 0  -  63  (lowest  to
           highest intensity) for red, green, blue.
    
                   0  0  0  0   # black
                   1  0  0 42   # blue
                   2  0 42  0   # green
                   3  0 42 42   # cyan
                   4 42  0  0   # red
                   5 42  0 42   # magenta
                   6 42 21  0   # brown
                   7 42 42 42   # white
                   8 21 21 21   # bright black
                   9 21 21 63   # bright blue
                  10 21 63 21   # bright green
                  11 21 63 63   # bright cyan
                  12 63 21 21   # bright red
                  13 63 21 63   # bright magenta
                  14 63 63 21   # bright brown
                  15 63 63 63   # bright white
    
           The  inline  comments  are  the only kind of allowed, as I use a little
           fscanf(3) trick to get them. Blank lines are ok, but not  pure  comment
           lines. See the comments in my code, also.
    
           This allows people to set up custom palettes for use in virtual console
           text modes. I use it all the time. When combined  with  a  color-syntax
           editor  like jed-0.97+ or color-ls, etc., being able to choose your own
           text-mode palette is quite a bonus. I set mine  up  via  restorepalette
           /etc/palette  in  my /etc/rc.  If the program is given the correct per-
           missions, then individual users can have restorepalette  ~/.palette  or
           some  such thing in their shell startup files.  Of course, it shouldn't
           be done when starting remote shells or when under X, so  some  kind  of
           test that TERM is a virtual console is needed for that case.
