Hello ,

i personally always turn colors of. I hate it if i install a new
linux system and the first ls -la turns the screen into an ocean of
blinking colors... ;-)

I personaly believe curl should concentrate on fetching URLs. The
presentation or further processing of the fetched data should be left to
the application that uses curl. Thats why i like this approach:

> B="`tput bold`"
> b="`tput sgr0`"
> 2>&1 curl -v | \
> sed -e"s/^< \([A-Z}[A-Za-z-]*:\)/< $B\1$b/" | less -R

But thats just my personal opinion. If the feature is switchable and is
preferably switched off by default i can live with it...

Kind Regards,
