ansi2html - ansi to HTML converter


ansi2html [-n] [-w] <log >outfile


ansi2html will convert the ANSI log into a HTML page, converting ANSI color codes into appropriate tags. All standard colors and attributes are supported.


-n, --no-header
Don't produce a HTML header. This allows including the log into a web page you make some other way. You are responsible for setting background color appropriately — to black or something dark in the default on-black mode, or to white/light when -w is used. Fancy-schmancy background images are fine.
-w, --white
Make the background white. This is contrary to most terminals but matches most webpages. Text requested to be bolded (normally bright white) will be turned bold black, but explicit bright white will not be changed, becoming invisible (just like explicit black is invisible in the normal on-black mode), same as on real terminals.
-t, --title text
Set the page title to the next argument. Mutually exclusive with -n.


Most ANSI codes other than color codes are ignored; possibly causing misformatted output. In general, anything unfit for a hardcopy terminal won't work.
