Pipe text through colout, and you can apply color to specific strings. It’s a very clever idea, and one I like a lot.
What you see above is a good example of what colout can do — find commented sections in code and highlight them.
In the most basic terms, just
cat text.txt | colout word red bold will search for “word” in the file and paint it red where it is found.
Of course, that alone is possible just with
grep --color, in a way. colout just gives a little more flexibility.
If it sounds like I like colout, you’re right. I’m willing to give this one a gold smiley: 😀
