I’m wondering why I can’t have colors for
ri in my Terminal.app
Well, I tried this command (ri -f ansi Hash) with 3 interpreters:
ruby 1.8.6 (2008-08-11 patchlevel 287) [universal-darwin9.0] => doesn’t
work, I get some ESC[1m
ruby 1.9.2dev (2009-07-18 trunk 24186) [i386-darwin9.8.0] => doesn’t
get some ESC[1m
jruby 1.4.0RC3 (ruby 1.8.7 patchlevel 174) (2009-10-28 d0f6289) (Java
HotSpot™ Client VM 1.5.0_20) [i386-java]
=> WORK (but not so cool colors… that’s another subject…)
The difference I see is jruby output directly to the STDOUT, while the
less, which seem to not work good with these
In fact I’m resolving myself my own problem …
Using -T(–no-pager) send directly to STDOUT, what works.
So my question is: why
less doesn’t accept colors?
P.S.: Anyway I’ve aliased ri to “ri --no-pager -f ansi”, and I’m happy
I don’t like so much these pagers…
Enjoy Ruby !
