Alias grep --color
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:04 EST
Description of problem:
alias grep='grep --color'
That's awesome and goes nice with ls.
Control over the color is possible through the $GREP_COLOR var. See man grep.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. grep Fedora /etc/issue
I see the line:
Fedora Core release 3 (Heidelberg)
The "Fedora" in the line should be highlighted red.
I can provide a patch if that helps faster resolution.
Any reason for that? It's definitely providing extra functionality, and it's
auto, turns off if not pointing to terminal.
It's not providing extra functionality, it's just changing a default. Anyone
who wants to do this on their own machine can do so very easily.
If *we* change the default *for* them, there will be complaints, and I will have
to deal with them.
