colorcoke shows off some cool things you can do with the Term::ExtendedColor family of modules.
colorcoke lets one modify the extended colorset (88-16 or 256-16 colors, respectively) for a running terminal session. The change takes effect immediately - no need to restart the terminal.
Shades and tints can be generated for an arbitary number of ranges.
The ANSI colors can be left untouched, be included in a shade or set separately. One can also exclude everything but the ANSI colors. The ANSI colors is untouched by default.
The grey scale ramp (extended color index 232-255) is left untouched by default. To include them, set the end point to 255.
Additional colors can be left untouched by specifying their index with the “–no flag”. This can also be configured in the configuration file.
The base color to use is specified with the -c flag, and the stepping is controlled with the -r, -g and -b flag - red, green and blue channel.
Red, green and blue amount is specified with “-rr”, “-rg” and “-rb” when the randomizing option is used.
