cw is a non-intrusive real-time ANSI color wrapper for
common Unix-based commands. It is designed to simulate
the environment of the commands being executed, so that if
a person types 'du', 'df', 'ping', etc. in their shell it will
automatically color the output in real-time according to a
definition file containing the color format desired. It has
support for wildcard match coloring, tokenized coloring,
headers/footers, case scenario coloring, command-line-
dependent definition coloring, and includes over 50 pre-
made definition files.
The following command-line options were added:
--cw-colorize, --cw-invert, --cw-nocolor,
--cw-norandom, --cw-usepty, and --cw-supermap.
These are to be used for on-the-fly changes in
conjunction with wrapped programs. The "noaddhelp"
definition instruction was added to disable the
display of cw options when "--help" is passed to
the wrapped program.
Support for compiling on QNX was added. The
"nowarnings" and "warnings" definition
instructions were added. The configure arguments
--prefix and --mandir are now fully operational,
including relation to colorcfg. The real program
filename reference was changed to strip the path
and only show the filename. The "path" definition
instruction was changed to allow the PATH
environment variable to be included with other
paths. Many minor features were changed.
