I have seen in a recent post a patch to print correctly[?] "\0"
escapes in terminals. However I'd really like to use the
'official' Lua to do that.
I am currently trying to write some scripts and it is a
_necessity_ having an easy to check output. Note that plain color
is not an option... Tried many things including string.format(),
google and lua-user-wiki without any luck.
May I need a Lua/C module or patch to do just that?
Is there some clue in io.stdout() ?
bash> echo -e "\033[01;31mError" -> Error (red)
perl> print "\033[01;31mError" -> Error (red)
python> print "\033[01;31mError" -> Error (red)
C: printf("\033[01;31mError") -> Error (red)
lua> print "\033[01;31mError" -> ![01;31mError
Hopefully this isn't a duplicate post. Thanks for your time.
