SYNOPSIS

ansifilter [d:i:F:o:s:e:fhptvHRT] [-i input file] [-o output file] [--text] [--html] [--latex] [--tex] [--rtf] [input files]

DESCRIPTION

Ansifilter is a small utility to handle text files containing ANSI terminal escape codes. The command sequences may be stripped or be interpreted to generate formatted output (HTML, LaTeX, TeX, RTF).

See the README file for details.

File options

-i, --input=<file> name of input file
-o, --output=<file> name of output file
-O, --outdir=<dir> name of output directory
-t, --tail Continue reading after end-of-file (like tail -f). Use system tail if available.

Output formats

-T, --text Output text (default)
-H, --html Output HTML
-L, --latex Output LaTeX
-P, --tex Output Plain TeX
-R, --rtf Output RTF
-B, --bbcode Output BBCode

Format options

-d, --doc-title Set HTML/LaTeX document title
-f, --fragment Omit HTML header and footer
-F, --font=<font> Set HTML/RTF font face
-r, --style-ref=<rf> Set HTML/TeX/LaTeX stylesheet path
-s, --font-size=<num?> Set HTML/RTF font size
-e, --encoding=<enc> Set HTML encoding (must match input file encoding); omit encoding information if enc=NONE
-p, --plain Ignore ANSI formatting information
-w, --wrap=<len> Wrap long lines

OTHER OPTIONS

-h, --help print help
-v, --version print version and license info

If no in- or output files are specified, stdin and stdout will be used for in- or output. Plain text will be generated, if no output format is given.

Examples

File conversions:

ansifilter -i text_with_ansi.txt -o text_without_ansi.txt

tail -f server.log | ansifilter

ansifilter *.txt
