Description kde123 2002-06-01 11:43:37 UTC
Please provide a flag setting to allow emerge to suppress ansi screen formatting
characters.  When you pipe emerge output to less or to a file, the output is
really ugly.  Example, emerge -n .... or emerge --noansi.

support for this exists by the following 2 methods:
(1) export NOCOLOR=true
(2) color is only enabled if sys.stdout isnt a tty
see Bug 5714

if those requirements satisfy your needs, then please close the bug :)
