Colour Escapes

Colour escape sequences are useful for designing text user interfaces (TUI).

Layout of an colour escape sequence: echo -e "\033[<parameter><action>"

\033 enters escape mode and [ is called the command sequence introduction.

Several parameters-action pairs can be specified in a single escape sequence by separating them using semicolons.</li> </ul> </ul>
