When using util.inspect with colored output relatively small arrays and objects still end up on multiple lines. I guess this is caused by the fact that the color-codes are also included in the line width calculation.

example case:

 // Ends up on a single line as intended:
console.log(require('util').inspect([1,2,3,4,5,6], {colors: false}))
// Is split up over multiple lines:
console.log(require('util').inspect([1,2,3,4,5,6], {colors: true})) 

It's not really a vital problem but it makes printing larges objects much more readable. Maybe a regexp to strip out the color-codes when calculating the line width would do the trick?

edit: Sorry for the double post; it gave me a 404 :(


Duplicate of #5039.
