            Parsing linux color control sequences
            Asked 2022-Jan-14 at 15:27

            I'm trying to render the output of a linux shell command in HTML. For example, systemctl status mysql looks like this in my terminal:

            As I understand from Floz'z Misc I was expecting that the underlying character stream would contain control codes. But looking at it in say hexyl (systemctl status mysql | hexyl) I can't see any codes:

            Looking near the bottom on lines 080 and 090 where the text "Active: failed" is displayed, I was hoping to find some control sequences to change the color to red. While not necessarily ascii, I used some ascii tables to help me:

            • looking at the second lot of 8 characters on line 090 where the letters ive: fa are displayed, I find:
            • 69 = i
            • 76 = v
            • 65 = e
            • 3a = :
            • 20 = space
            • 66 = f
            • 61 = a
            • 69 = i

            There are no bytes for control sequences.

            I wondered if hexyl is choosing not to display them so I wrote a Java program which outputs the raw bytes after executing the process as a bash script and the results are the same - no control sequences.

            The Java is roughly:

            systemctl detects that the output is not a terminal, and it removes colors codes from the output.

            Related: Detect if stdin is a terminal or pipe? , https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/249723/how-to-trick-a-command-into-thinking-its-output-is-going-to-a-terminal , https://superuser.com/questions/1042175/how-do-i-get-systemctl-to-print-in-color-when-being-interacted-with-from-a-non-t

            Tools sometimes (sometimes not) come with options to enable color codes always, like ls --color=always, grep --color=always on in case of systemd with SYSTEMD_COLORS environment variable.

            What tool can I use to see them?

            You can use hexyl to see them.

            how does bash know that it has to mark the word "failed" red?

            Bash is the shell, it is completely unrelated.

            Your terminal, the graphical window that you are viewing the output with, knows to mark it red because of ANSI escape sequences in the output. There is no interaction with Bash.
