    Is there a program out there to design ANSI screens and have them BSAVEd to disk (then BLOADed)?

    Yes, in text mode there are only 16 colors you can use at a time;
    but on a VGA system you should be able to modify the color palette
    with an Interrupt 10h call or with direct port writes.
    (I do not have the exact references here about how it is done,
    but I am sure you will find documentation for example in Ralf
    Brown's Interrupt List and in other places.)

    I know, it's a bit late, have'nt had a look into the Forum for
    some time.

    Are you trying to use Colors within PB compiled DOS programs or
    at the DOS prompt ?

    At the DOS prompt the "ESC" ANSI codes mentioned in previous
    replys apply. In PB compiled DOS programs there is a way to use
    all 16 Colors both as Foreground and Background Colors. One way
    or the other, 16 colors is all you get in DOS ?

    Want to know more ? E-Mail me on: [email protected]

    Download the library and see the file called DISPANSI.BAS, it is an
    ANSI decoding routine... I forgot about this one being in there,
    sorry. :P

    ANSI Graphic is displayed with the TYPE command while in DOS or
    from a DOS shell from a program. Where you first have to load
    an ANSI.SYS driver from you Config.sys file when you boot to dos.
    Are you wanting to change your display colors while you are in DOS
    and not running any programs? When you type DIR, you get a list of
    files.

    Or are you wanting to decorate the screens in your programs that
    you write? If so, you might consider Extended ASCII Graphics that
    looks just like ANSI Graphics. The Codes are in the Back of your
    Manual. You use them with CHR$().

    Peter,

    The full source is included with the library. The source to the
    library including ANSI encoding... If you need ANSI decoding
    routines let me know...

    I have a Library for PB v3.5 w/source code that has several ANSI code
    routines included. It is available here on the PB Website at: http://www.powerbasic.com/files/pub/...m/PB35Mdm2.zip
