 So You Like Color?

Good article on using colors on the console.

"Have you ever redirected the output of a curses program with colors and wondered what those mysterious ^[[ symbols are? Have you ever tried to produce colors with a printf command without using curses? If the answer to either of these questions is yes, read on. This article attempts to explain the mysterious characters that one finds in the output of a curses program that produces colors. Later, we extend this concept to produce colors with a mere printf command."
