Hello!

I am running acme with rc shell.

Output of some commands contain ansi colors ag, git etc.

For now I pipe the output to ansi2txt to get rid of color codes.

Is there a better way to handle this?

Some commands offer way to turn of colors but it is lot to type.

Thanks!

I set these environment vars from my acme startup script for a somewhat better experience:

TERM=dumb
MANPAGER='9 p'
PAGER='col -b'

It is then up to each external command to honor the dumb terminal setting. Most do, some don’t. The color codes are gone in git at least.
