- This is a short (no, it's not short anymore :) perl script to colorize' your logs. You can use your own colors, you can simply modify your config file in your home directory ($HOME), or system-wide (/etc/colorizerc). Some colors are shit, 'cause I was developing the script on my sisters' mono vga monitor. If you have a good "theme", I please you to send me, and I will put into the tarball.
- Put somewhere in your path. Or just set the PATH environment variable.
You will need a Perl module called Term::ANSIColor by Russ Allbery and Zenin (thanks for it).
You can download from the CPAN archive: http://www.cpan.org/modules/by-module/Term/
or (when you use Debian GNU/Linux potato) simply type: apt-get install libansicolor-perl
or (when you use Debian GNU/Linux woody or newer), it is in the perl-modules package.
- Just pipe the logs in the script, and have fun.
- cat /var/log/daemon.log | colorize tail -0f /var/log/daemon.log /var/log/apache/access.log | colorize colorize < /var/log/messages
- In TIPS file and in examples directory.
