Colors are working now! Smilie
Gave it a shot this afternoon for a few minutes (first image), but since the sun was shining, I decided to not sit in front of the computer Smilie

So I then continued like 1 hr and 5 minutes ago....

And a a few adjustments later, voila, the result is screenshot:

Allthough I had code written already for that, I could only re-use 2 lines of code, the other 140 lines (total, incl yesterday) were/are freshly written.

I'm so happy, now that the core visuals are done (already!!!), I can focus on the cool part....
Convenience functions, like: ask, choose, edit, progress, download and all the other small things Smilie

You have NO IDEA how much I MISS my TUI!!
But I force myself to continue SWARM until I can replace all my TUI scripts.

Console/terminal feels sooo 1985 again...

Soon, very soon.. I hope Smilie

And just saying.. colors and borders are THEME'able! Smilie

But for the roadmap ahead, I'll do these tomorrow:
* ask "Question?" ; the (yn) will be supported by language file & code!
* choose $list or "${ARRAY[@]}" ; the select wrapper
* and if, which probably will be the case, I have enough time, status $? "left text" "center text"

As this would complete what I consider the absolute minimal core requirements of SWARM.

elfdump - dump information contained in object files. SYNOPSIS
num] num2] name] section] num] num2] files... DESCRIPTION
takes one or more object files or libraries and dumps information about them. The following options are supported: Dumps archive headers from an archive library. Dumps the string table(s). (Modifier) Demangles C++ symbol names before printing them. This modifier is valid with and If specified with this modifier is ignored. If specified with name, the symbol whose unmangled name matches name will be printed, and its symbol name will be printed as a demangled name. Prints the .note section which contains the compilation unit dictionary and linker footprint. This option has the same effect as Prints the compilation unit dictionary of the .notes section. Prints the linker footprint of the .notes section. The linker footprint has information on the linker used to generate the file as well as the link time. (Modifier) Prints the section whose index is num. (Modifier) Prints the sections in the range 1 to num2. If used with the sections in the range num to num2 are printed. Valid with If used with only the relocations which apply to the section(s) in the range are printed. Dumps the file header (ELF header). Dumps global symbols from an archive. Dumps the section headers. (Modifier) Dumps output information in hexadecimal, octal, or decimal format, with all options. Displays the run-time interpreter path name for (usually the location of the dynamic loader and microloader). Only shared bound executables have this string. To change the setting, use the command. Prints the object dictionary for one or more executable files, if the source file was compiled with the option or linked with (PA-RISC only) option. The object dictionary entry contains the name of the object file that contributed to a particular section, the relative offset within the section, size of the object file's contribution, and attributes of the entry. Prints the CTTI section headers according to the directory member relationship. Dumps the section in shared libraries and dynamically linked program files. Prints the section, which is only created when the incremental linker is used (with the command), or when the linker option is used (which is the default), along with the compiler option, (which is NOT the default). Prints the section, which is only created when the incremental linker is used (with the command), or when the linker option is used (which is the default), along with the compiler option, (which is NOT the default). Prints the section, which is only created when the incremental linker is used (with the command), or when the linker option is used (which is the default), along with the compiler option, (which is NOT the default). (Modifier) Dumps information about the specified section or symbol name. This option is valid with and If used with name pertains to a symbol name and will only dump the symbol entry whose name matches name. If used with the other options, name pertains to a section name and will only dump the section whose name matches it. Dumps the optional headers (program headers). (Modifier) Do not print titles, with all options. (Modifier) Suppresses printing CTTI section headers. Valid with option. Dumps the relocations. Dumps the section contents. Dumps any section beginning with as a string table. (Modifier) Dumps the section specified by name. Valid with and only. (Modifier) Dumps output information in short format. Valid with the and options. Dumps the symbol table entries. (Itanium-based systems) Dumps the value of in symbol table, in addition to information dump from option. This option is useful to verify the data stored in the symbol table. Prints the symbol whose index is num. (Modifier) Prints the symbols in the range 0 to num2. If used with print the symbols in the range num to num2. Valid with Prints versioned symbols. Prints the usage menu. Prints the unwind table. (Modifier) Verifies the CTTI section headers before printing. Valid with the option. Prints the version number for EXAMPLES
