April 2018

  • Under Gentoo Linux you can color the man page for better readability.
  • To perform this simply install the tool using:
    • emerge most 
  • This tool is a pager(program to display text from a file),integrating the possibility to add colors for better readability.
  • Once installed the tool most should be added to ~/.bashrc the line
    • export PAGER="/usr/bin/most"

From now the interface of the man page will be colored.
