[REBOL] Colors for Rebol

From: andy::flyingcat::com at: 15-Oct-2002 12:51

Hi: I'm using Rebol on a linux system with an 8 bit display (X window displau) (yes, that's right, 256 colors). I can't seem to get exactly the colors I want on the screen using Rebol. For instance, if I do a view/new layout [cat: box 300x100 255.255.255] I get a white box, as I want. But if I then do cat/color: 255.255.250 show cat I get the exact same shade of white. If I use a non-Rebol program side by side, so I can be sure of what's going on, like xterm, ie xterm -background rgb:ff/ff/fa -geometry 100x100+100+100 I clearly see the Rebol program is displaying the same color for both 255.255.250 and 255.255.255 While xterm displays different colors. Is there some setting anyone knows about that can give me the results I need ? Thanks, Andy
