Introduction -- How to use Console_Color


Console_Color provides methods to convert complete strings tagged with special markers into ANSI-compatible color code representations, and methods that directly return those codes for certain colors.

The method used most often is convert(). It takes a string, e.g.
%bHello World!%n\n
3 out of 4 people make up about %r75%% %n
and returns the ANSI representation. The characters following a percentage sign (%) do have special meanings. See color codes to get an overview.

To reset the colors to normal, use %n.

Further, there is an escape() method that prevents special chars from being treated as markers.

Methods bgcolor(), color(), fgcolor() and style() directly return ANSI control codes for the given color or style value.

Using strip(), you can remove color and style codes from a string.


require 'Console/Color.php';
//make it blue
print Console_Color::convert("%bHello World!%n\n");
//more colors
print Console_Color::convert("%rred%n, %ggreen%n, %yyellow%n\n");
