NAME

hi - highlight things in a stream of output

SYNOPSIS

  hi [options] [regex color [regex color [regex color [...]]]]
      --list-colors --list -l: list the available colors and exit
      --nixnics --noex -x:     do not use the extended color nicknames
      --trunc -t:              truncate lines to this width (argument required)
      --help -h:               this help
      --command -c:            fork and execute this command and pipe it through hi

EXAMPLES

Intended as a pipe colorizer

  ps auxfw | hi jettero sky root red ^nobody orange

  sudo tail -f /var/log/vsftpd.log | hi CONNECT.* umber OK.UPLOAD.* lime

limited Makefile support

  SHELL = hi interesting.*thing umber
  default:

Although, the output probably isn't quite what you'd expect. Make prints the commands before it forks the subshell. So whatever hi prints instead already has all the make substitutions completed. ls $(something) turns into ls /whatever/something/was. Worse, -c gets passed whatever the Makefile executes, not just commands it would have (or did) print.

It's probably not usable like this without some clever make tricks.

REPORTING BUGS

You can report bugs either via rt.cpan.org or via the issue tracking system on github. I'm likely to notice either fairly quickly.
