SETCOLORS() Interactive color setting interface



  This is a development tool for finding nice
  combinations of colors for the global superfunction colors. I would
  not give this to an end user, as it is just TOO MANY CHOICES! I
  normally select 10-15 nice combinations of the colors and give
  the user a selection of those, giving them such names as
  'Hawaiian Blue' or 'Royal Red'. In fact, see COLPIK() for just
  such a function.

  If SETBLINK() is set to False (.f.), the high
  intensity colors will be available - if your monitor supports them.


  First, a word on the Superfunction color scheme:

  This is not the perfect color scheme. It is the one
  on which this library runs. (hey - I hadda pick something) I
  also realize full well that color selection is more art than it
  is technical, and it is difficult to get two people to agree on
  a color scheme.

  Several global color settings are used, and they are
  recorded and accessed via the functions:

     sls_normcol([cNew])    -  For normal input/output
     sls_normmenu([cNew])   -  For normal 'menu to' operations
     sls_popcol([cNew])     -  For popup box colors
     sls_popmenu([cNew])    -  For popup box menus
     sls_frame([cNew])      -  Frame string
     sls_shadatt([nNew])    -  Shadow color attribute
     sls_shadpos([nNew])    -  Shadow position (0,1,3,7,9)
     sls_xplode([lNew])     -  Logical - explode windows?

     (All of the colors are of the format "f/b,f/b,,,f/b"
      where f=foreground b=background)

  SETCOLORS() allows interactive setting of these
  colors. The settings can stored as color sets in COLORS.DBF -
  which is created if needed by SETCOLORS().

  If COLORS.DBF is not present, SuperLib will use a
  default set of colors.

  See the SATT*() functons, and the SLS_*() functions
  for more info.

  See the appendix for more general colors info.

  See the upgrade notes for more info on upgrading from
  older SuperLibs, which used a public variable scheme.
