I log into my server remotely, and use VIM to edit files. Using the noctu colorscheme, VIM uses the available default 8 system colors and their light/bold variants, 16 colors total.
For whatever reason, on this terminal, the dark and light greens and the dark and light cyans are very similar.
With syntax highlighting in VIM, they are almost indistinguishable. The terminal is capable of 256 colors, as running the 256colors2.pl script shows the full spectrum.
Is there a way to modify the .bashrc to improve the contrast on some of the colors?
Research note: Everything I've read on the subject requires modifications to .Xdefaults or something, which I can't do because I'm not running an X window system, I'm logging in remotely -- no gui.
