=head1 NAME

colortest-python - Display color test chart and convert between color values

=head1 SYNOPSIS

  colortest-python

=head1 DESCRIPTION

Displays 256, 88 and 16 color tables depending on what the terminal
supports. Also provides for conversion between 256 and 88 color
values.

The program automatically detects 8, 16, 88, 256 color capabilities
(via ncurses) and displays the appropriate color charts. Program can
display the colors as blocks or 2d cubes optionally with color values
overlaid in int or hex values, it can show the full rgb text string
and show the display with a vertical (default) or horizontal
orientation.

In addition to the color charts it can also convert between 256 and
88 color values. This can be useful when converting various terminals
like between urxvt and xterm-256.

The goal of this program was to provide the functionality of all the
various Perl and sh scripts in one place with some bells and whistles.
