Description (last modified by andrew_b) (diff)

I can't see text printed in bright blue in tty (Slackware Linux, using default skin), I suggest to replace it in syntax files with bright cyan, it can be done with such script ran in syntax folder (skips filehighlight.syntax and syntax.syntax):

#! /bin/tcsh
set a = `basename $0`
foreach b (*)
    if ($b != $a && $b != "filehighlight.syntax" && $b != "syntax.syntax") then
        sed -i s/brightblue/brightcyan/ $b

OK, tput colors returns 8, while there are 16 colors allowed for syntax files, so it's not reasonable to change syntax files. Though it would be nice to add colors translation for 8 colors terminals.

Are we talking about the text console (tty1 .. tty6)? Is it framebuffer or absolutely standard legacy vga mode?

tput colors returns 8 there, but most likely it means 8 background and 16 foreground colors, since the ambiguous "bold/bright" attribute probably means "bright" (for the foreground only) here.
