How to write a text in red color

Hi All,

I am directing my script output to the file by executing the script
through DOS prompt like test.rb > results.txt. My question is how do I
write test case failed puts statement in red color? is there any
WATIR/ruby method available?

ex: script

My aim is write this text in red color in the following method

puts “Test Failed! Could not find: #{val}”

def Set(ie,id,val)
writeln 'SET - ’ + id + ’ ’ + val
$ie.text_field(:id, id).set(val)

if id == 'username'
  puts "Test Passed. Found the test string: #{id}. "

elsif id == 'password'
  puts "Test Passed. Found the test string: #{id}. "

 elsif $ie.contains_text(val)
  puts "Test Passed. Found the test string: #{val}. "
else
  puts "Test Failed! Could not find: #{val}"
end

end

Try searching:
PS C:> gem search -r color

If you want to output ANSI escape sequences and get color output, use
https://github.com/adoxa/ansicon (Ruby gems that you installed might
implicitly assume ANSI escape sequences).

A method of solution is perfect if we can forsee from the start,
and even prove, that following that method we shall attain our aim.

try this on ruby under msdos under windows xp - it works fine
require ‘rubygems’
require ‘Win32console’
matchknt=1
mismatchknt=3
puts “#{matchknt} \e[32mmatch\e[0m and #{mismatchknt}
\e[31mmismatch\e[0m”

I prefer to use the rainbow gem.
