       grcat - read from standard input, colourise it and write to standard output


       grcat configuration


       configuration    is    a    name   of   a   configuration   file.   Directories   ~/.grc/,
       /usr/local/share/grc/, /usr/share/grc/ are searched for the file (in this order).

       If the file is not found, it is assumed to be an absolute path  of  a  configuration  file
       located elsewhere.

       Configuration  file  consists of entries, one per regexp, entries are separated with lines
       with first character non-alphanumeric (except #).  Lines beginning with # or  empty  lines
       are ignored.

       Each  entry consists of several lines.  Each line has form: keyword=value where keyword is
       one of: regexp, colours, command, concat, skip, count.  Only regexp is mandatory,  but  it
       does not have much sense by itself unless you specify at least a colour or command keyword
       as well.

       regexp is the regular expression to match

       colours is the list of colours, separated by commas (you can  specify  only  one  colour),
       each colour per one regexp group specified in regexp.

       command  is  command  to  be  executed  when regexp matches. Its output will be mixed with
       normal stdout, use redirectors ( >/dev/null) if you want to supress it.

       replace means the regular expression  match  will  be  replaced  by  the  value,  all  the
       preceeding  regular  expressions  will  be  evaluated  against  the original text, all the
       following regular expressions will be evaluated against the replaced text

       skip can be either yes, or no, if yes, the matched line will be skipped and not  displayed
       in output.  Default is no.

       count is one of words: once, more, or stop.

       once means that if the regexp is matched, its first occurrence is coloured and the program
       will continue with other regexp's.

       more means that if there are multiple matches of the regexp in one line, all of them  will
       be coloured.

       stop  means  that the regexp will be coloured and program will move to the next line (i.e.
       ignoring other regexp's)

       Regular expressions are evaluated from top to bottom, this allows  nested  and  overlapped
       expressions.  (e.g.  you  colour  everything  inside parentheses with one colour, and if a
       following expression matches the text inside parentheses, it will be also coloured)


       None so far.
