A simple wrapper around make to colorize the output.

branch: master
README
Colormake
---------

This is a simple wrapper for making the output from make easier to read
(more colorful), and errors easier to find in messy compilations.  It was
inspired by Micheal T. Babcock's excellent logcolorize program.


Files
-----

colormake.pl   A perl filter, which colorizes make's output.
colormake      A shell script, which combines make and colormake.pl

The rest is documentation.


Installation
------------

cp -fa colormake.pl colormake colormake-short clmake clmake-short /usr/bin/


Usage
-----

Type "colormake" whenever you'd ordinarily type "make".

Type "clmake" for the same effect, but piped through "less".

The "colormake-short" and "clmake-short" versions of the commands will
massage the output so lines do not wrap, but are otherwise the same.
