Highlight strings using the ANSI terminal escape sequences
From the histring README
This program simply highlights strings using ANSI terminal escape codes. It started out as sample code for using regular expressions but it turned out that I used it so much that I thought it warrented a release.
One of the most common things I use the program for is helping me parse the output of grep and diff. I think that this programs functionality should be folded in to those programs but until then histring does the job nicely.
