Do a "man cp" in gentoo and the diagnostics output, is broken but pretty looking with colors. Do the same thing on debian and the output is not colored, nor is broken.

Seems like debian disables vt escape secuences for bold and italic, while gentoo does not.

Maybe you should disable escape sequences and get the same behaviour on both systems?

Discussion

  • Fixed as of build 4458.
    I don't know why debian will not pipe VT escape sequences (to give the bold/italic typefaces)
    If you figure that out, please let me know.
