Thanks for nothin' everybody! I *know* I can set the stupid background
and foreground colors explicitly! I'm not a newbie! All I want to do
is set the stinkin' program so that whenever I pop up a window, even if
I'm just doodlin' around at the command prompt, it doesn't default to
that ugly white on black thing. Black on white is so 1970's! I mean,
come on, is that too much to ask! I know there is a default value
hidden in there somewhere, RSI. Why won't you let me screw with it?
Jeez, I guess I'll have to switch to Python or some other such *modern*
(In civilized newsgroups I'd be embarassed about responding to my own
post, but everyone else in this group does it too. So there.)
