Crate term [] [src]

🔬 This is a nightly-only experimental API. (rustc_private)

this crate is being loaded from the sysroot, and unstable location; did you mean to load this crate from crates.io via Cargo.toml instead?

Terminal formatting library.

This crate provides the Terminal trait, which abstracts over an ANSI Terminal to provide color printing, among other things. There are two implementations, the TerminfoTerminal, which uses control characters from a terminfo database, and WinConsole, which uses the Win32 Console API.

Examples

extern crate term;
use std::io::prelude::*;

fn main() {
    let mut t = term::stdout().unwrap();

    t.fg(term::color::GREEN).unwrap();
    write!(t, "hello, ").unwrap();

    t.fg(term::color::RED).unwrap();
    writeln!(t, "world!").unwrap();

    assert!(t.reset().unwrap());
}Run
