cw is a non-intrusive real-time ANSI color wrapper for common Unix-based commands. It is designed to simulate the environment of the commands being executed, so that if a person types 'du', 'df', 'ping', etc. in their shell it will automatically color the output in real-time according to a definition file containing the color format desired. It has support for wildcard match coloring, tokenized coloring, headers/footers, case scenario coloring, command-line- dependent definition coloring, and includes over 50 pre- made definition files.

Release Notes: A compiling issue on newer Fedora (and possibly other) distributions was fixed.
Release Notes: This release fixes a "make install" failure that occurred on some systems. It fixes compiler warnings of execle() calls that occurred on some systems. 10 new definition files have been added.
Release Notes: Fixes a bug that could crash cw, introduced in the previous version.
Release Notes: The following command-line options were added: --cw-colorize, --cw-invert, --cw-nocolor, --cw-norandom, --cw-usepty, and --cw-supermap. These are to be used for on-the-fly changes in conjunction with wrapped programs. The "noaddhelp" definition instruction was added to disable the display of cw options when "--help" is passed to the wrapped program.
Release Notes: Support for compiling on QNX was added. The "nowarnings" and "warnings" definition instructions were added. The configure arguments --prefix and --mandir are now fully operational, including relation to colorcfg. The real program filename reference was changed to strip the path and only show the filename. The "path" definition instruction was changed to allow the PATH environment variable to be included with other paths. Many minor features were changed.
