CHILIGHT(1) General Commands Manual CHILIGHT(1)


chilighthighlight a C source file


chilight [-V] [-f format] [-o file] [-t title] [-w width] [file ...]


The chilight utility colorizes the input file, expected to be written in the C language, with text attributes or markups.
The options are as follows:
-f format
Set the output format to format.
The format can be one of: ansi_color, ansi_bold, html_color, html_font, roff or tty (the default).
-o file
Set the output destination to file.
-t title
Specify the page title for the generated HTML page.
Print version information on standard output then exit.
-w width
Set the tab width for the roff style.
Tabulator characters are converted to suitable amounts of space characters to gain better typographic quality on roff output. Acceptable values are in the range 1..16 which should be ample for most situations.
