This question about colorizing output which has been migrated from ServerFault and included an answer from my humble self, got this very answer deleted by a moderator.

Would you mind taking a second glance as the answer indeed did add another aspect which IMO has not been mentioned as of yet? Obviously, I would not have made the effort of writing it if I would not have attributed any value to the information provided.

  • I'm tempted to just merge those questions; I didn't because the newer one specifically asked about sed, but it looks like most answers ignored that anyway Dec 5, 2012 at 18:43
  • @MichaelMrozek At ServerFault, it probably would have been closed as duplicate by now. But your practice would be different, I understand. Dec 5, 2012 at 23:57
