DESCRIPTION

       colorit  is  a  script for markuping text input and sending a result to stdout.  Markuping
       rules are described in a configuration file which is filtered by preprocessor (the default
       is  m4  ).  The define HOME equal to your home directory is set for the preprocessor using
       -D option supported by both m4 and cpp.  This script can be used for colorizing  the  text
       by  ANSI  escape  sequences,  or  making  a  simple  text  conversions and may be used for
       colorizing output of dict or other programs. In particular, log files, dict, cc, make,  or
       diff output can easily be colorized and viewed.

CONFIG FILE

       each input line.
       args strings can be surrounded by double-quote characters.
       Currently,  only  mark  command  is  available  having  the  following  arguments:  regexp
       pre_string post_string
       The pre_string and post_string are inserted at the beginning  and  the  end  of  substring
