4.8.3 attr-get

The function attr-get gets the current attributes and color pair of the window. Though we might not use this as often as the above runctions, this is useful in scanning areas of a screen. Say we wanted to do some complex update on the screen and we are not sure what attribute each character is associated with. Then this function can be used with either attr-set! or attr-on! to produce the desired effect.
