RE: Changing background color of an emacs window

Hello Lennart,Thank you! I really appreciate this code that you have 
contributed.However, I do have a few questions. I'm a newbie when it comes to 
Emacs Lisp, but is your code missing the read-color function? When I invoke 
buffer-bg-set-color interactively I get a message in the mini-buffer saying, 
"Symbol's function definition is void: read-color." I'm running GNU Emacs 
22.1.50.1.Also when I call the function by saying, for example, 
(buffer-bg-set-color "blue" "test-buffer") in the scratch buffer in invoke it 
with C-x C-e, it applies the color to the scratch buffer itself and not to the 
test-buffer buffer like I had wanted.- Corey> Date: Thu, 22 May 2008 23:36:42
