Additional_Info : I have only compiled it for Solaris (so far), but
source code is available and compilation wasn't
*too* difficult. You will need the colour patch
as well as the main source code.
You will need a .exrc.color file in your $HOME
directory; copy mine (~mortian/.exrc.color) for
a starting point, and/or see the colour info
If you are using a normal xterm, you will only
be able to differentiate plain and bold styles;
to use full colour you will need a colour xterm
(see cxterm in the repository).
PS.. I didn't compile in Fortran support. ;)
