Some tools like gcc, dmesg, grep --color, colordiff, ccze, etc can enhance their output with color, making reading a lot more pleasant. The difference can be as big as between slogging through twenty pages of a build log to find a failure, and a swift drag of the scroller to do the same within a second. Such colored logs can be usually viewed on a terminal or with "less -R"; this package gives you: * ansi2html: convert logs to HTML * ansi2txt: drop ANSI control codes * ttyrec2ansi: drop timing data from ttyrec files * pipetty: makes a program think its stdout and stderr are connected to a terminal; use as a prefix: "pipetty dmesg|tee" * lesstty: pipe a program (as above) to "less -R"
|ansi2html||Convert text with ANSI color codes to HTML|
|ansi2txt||ansi to plain text converter|
|lesstty||execute a program redirecting its output to a color-capable pager|
|pipetty||a tool to pipe from a pseudoterminal|
|ttyrec2ansi||ttyrec to ansi converter|
