Subject: [gentoo-user] How to get plain ascii from "man"?
Date: Wed, 25 Mar 2009 22:12:48
Message-Id: gqea84$ov5$
1 How do you get a plain ascii file (no backspacing, no escape
2 sequences) out of "man"? Running it through col or colcrt
3 doesn't work anymore, because the default output contains ANSI
4 color escape sequences.
6 grotty apparently outputs ANSI color escape sequences
7 regardless of whether or not the output is a tty and regardless
8 of the TERM setting.
10 Who decided that everyting in the friggin' world was an ANSI
11 color crt even if it's not a tty and TERM isn't set?
