ANSI EXAMPLE


In MUME you can use the ANSI standard in room descriptions, keywords, whois, and virtually any text that may be edited through the local editing protocol. The MUME line-editor will however have problems handling these codes since it will not support the <esc> character that's needed for ANSI codes.

A simple explanation and some examples:

The ANSI Text style attributes is as follows
"<esc>" + "[" + "<attribute>" + "m"
Where <attribute> is a number between 0 and 9

The ANSI color codes are always used as follows (every character is in " ") "<esc>" + "[" + "<attribute>" + "<colour>" + "m"
Where <attribute> is either 3(fg) or 4(bg) and <colour> is a value between 0 and 7.

You can also combine 2 or more styles (and/or colours) to get the wanted colour and style by separating the numbers with ;

Example: bold(1) white text(37) on blue background(44) like this "<esc>" + "[" + "1" + ";" + "3" + "7" + ";" + "4" + "4" + "m"

Or you can just go balistic and make up funny little Christmas-trees like this

Norway beat
Brazil 2-1 in the
France -98
Soccer World Cup
