digital literacy for everyone



[lit] fig is a multi-purpose educational language-- originally designed to offer 16 colours in the term window or vt, with a compatible 16-colour palette in a graphics window. in 2017, i decided that rather than extend the language, a simple function (rgbcolour) would allow 24-bit colour without any change to the language itself. figsp.fig is one of the early programs that use this function.
