Colorifer is a set of utilities that colors output of other processes, e.g. command line utilites or compilers. They make output more readable by using different colors for the significant pieces of the text. These programs can work like colorgcc perl script, and also for other programs. You only need to create a new config - set of the patterns (regular expressions) and the colors you want. 'CSed' is a color stream editor. It works like sed, but doesn't edit the stream and makes color substitutions instead. It is a simple filter that can be used to colorize the output of any program. CSed commands looks like sed commands. 'Colorifer' is a wrapper that runs a program and colorizes its output.
