Escape codes can be used to display colors in the transfer strings and the prompts. All escape codes must be surrounded by %{ and %} pairs for readline to correctly wrap long lines.

The built-in command ls has an option --color. You must set the environment variable LS_COLORS (or LS_COLOURS) for this to work. See manpage for GNU ls(1) and see dircolors, for information how to do this. If you don't set LS_COLO[U]RS, you can still use the --color option, since Yafc provides some default settings.
