Colors can be in any format understood by R:

  • A color name like "darkred"

  • A HTML string like "#FF0000"

  • The result of a function like rgb(1, 0, 0) or grey(0.5)

background_color(ht)
background_color(ht) <- value
set_background_color(ht, row, col, value )
map_background_color(ht, row, col, fn)
