color wrapper is a non-intrusive real-time ANSI color wrapper for common unix-based commands on GNU/linux
color wrapper is a non-intrusive real-time ANSI color wrapper for common unix-based commands on GNU/linux. cw 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.
color wrapper 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.
cw works by having an augmented PATH environmental variable which has a path to the cw definition directory prepended to it, this is usually set as "export ATH=/usr/local/lib/cw:$PATH" (in bash). in this cw definition directory you will see file(s) under the very same name of the program they are designed to color. these files appear as the common executable binaries you may be used to using, but they are just text files that contain instructions for cw to use, including the path to the "real" binary.
What's New in This Release:
Fixed bug that could crash cw, introduced in the previous version.
