The Nightmare Mudlib supports several different sets of escape sequences
for maximum compatibility with the various terminal emulations out there.
Most terminal emulations (vt100) for example either use the full ansi
escape sequences or the sequences for bolding. Nightmare supports the
following escape sequence protocols:
unknown (this is default, for non-color terminals)
Use the <setenv> command to set your terminal protocol.
Check <help color> to see how to say things in color.
Note that many mud clients use escape sequences, and therefore may become
confused by certain terminal types. 'unknown' will never mess up.
