A Wish

For many years I’ve been a very happy registered user of 4DOS.
I have one wish for the next version.  I wish that the "InputColors"
could be changed from the command line.  At present, one has
to edit 4DOS.INI and reboot.  In general, the more options that
could be moved from 4DOS.INI to the command line (ColorDir?
BrightBG?) the better.

    While the "InputColors=" directive cannot be redefined for the current
    shell, note that BrightBG can be toggled via the "/B" SETDOS option, and
    a COLORDIR variable overrides any "ColorDir=" directive.

    I suspect your wish will be granted … at the cost of running an
    external program to make the change.
