preserve color-infos in a xterm-selectionby tos (Deacon)
|on Dec 18, 2009 at 08:57 UTC||Need Help??|
tos has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
i know, this is not a perl question, but because i'm sure that perlmonks knowledge reaches beyond the frontiers of pure perl i'll put it here.
Does anybody know how it can be done that color-informations within a text-selection in a xterm-session can be preserved. If i select f.i. the colored output of a "ls -al --color=tty" i only get the uncolored text with a CutAndPaste-action but I would like to have the text AND the color-infos in a way you can see here:
Any suggestion or hints would be appreciated.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year,tos
