Seems like lolcat thinks a tab is just one character, but it is 8!!! The rainbow is misaligned! THE HORROR@.@
Can't see the "disruptz mah rainbowz."
lolcat doesn't like frog.
I just tried: echo -e "\ta\tb\tc" | lolcat -
echo -e "\ta\tb\tc" | lolcat -
lolcat didn't eat da TAB.
If you compare the first and second lines in that picture, each color is shifted 9 characters between them. Between normal lines, the colors only shift one character per line.
Quote my comment 'Can't see the "disruptz mah rainbowz."'
@tgs Thanks! This will be fixed in the next version.
Until then you can workaround by piping your output through sed 's/\t/ /g before giving it to lolcat.
sed 's/\t/ /g
Translate tab to 8 spaces
Fixes #26, fixes #15
