linux default iconcolor wrapper Publisher's description

A non-intrusive real-time ANSI color wrapper for Unix-based programs

cw 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. cw 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 PATH=/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"
