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 :)
