I am trying to edit color skins for midnight commander. When using 256 color palette, the colors are called color1 to color255. I am looking for particular tone of blue. Is there a palette of all 256 colors, where I can choose from? So that I can actually see that color24 is dark blue, etc.

I believe the xterm-256 colors chart is what you're looking for.


Alternatively, you can use names rgb000 to rgb555, and gray0 to gray23. See the sand256.ini skin definition file for details. Also the 256colors2.pl script from xterm's source might come handy.
