sansi(1)		       General Commands			      sansi(1)

NAME
       sansi  --  StripANSI;  strip ANSI escape	sequences/characters from text
       files

SYNTAX
       sansi < ANSIfied_textfile > unANSIfied_textfile

	      Strips ANSI from ANSIfied_textfile. Where	 ANSIfied_textfile  is
	      the   name   of	the  textfile  containing  ANSI,  and  unANSI-
	      fied_textfile is a filehandle  you've  chosen  for  it's	output
	      (sansi redirects the filtered output to the filename you've cho-
	      sen).

DESCRIPTION
       sansi was written to strip the ANSI control sequences in	files, or out-
       put, often, but not limited to those generated by compilers. I found it
       difficult to visually grok/grep the output of script(1) sessions.   Es-
       pecially	 with  the  advent  of	clang.	While  it's nice to replay the
       script(1) sessions to view the highlighted messages. It's near impossi-
       ble  to	read  it  inline in your favorite pager, or text editor; Enter
       sansi.

       ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS
	      John Marino
	      It probably would	have never occurred to me to release this, ex-
	      cept that	I thought it might help	him, and the other committers.
	      I	hoped it might help him	after all  the	[unintentional]	 grief
	      I've caused him. Thanks for your patience, John!
