************************ DOCUMENTATION FOR C O L O R **************************
COLOR is one program that won't get kicked off your system when you want to run
something else! In fact, it's such a vital (yet missing) part of DOS that you
may want to add it to all of your AUTOEXEC.BAT files!

TO INVOKE COLOR: type: COLOR XXX (YYY) Where XXX is the Bkgnd/Fgnd

color # (see IBM TECHNICAL REFERENCE appendix C or experiment!) and YYY is an

optional border color. The first time COLOR is invoked, it will set up an

interrupt-driven "wedge" which takes up only 83 bytes and automatically

writes your colors to the color/graphics adapter following any reset of the

system colors made by the operating system. Your color programs will be

unaffected, but DOS, BASIC & other DRAB B&W will use your Default settings!

Subsequent calls to COLOR will reset the color parameters! Have Fun!
