chilight(1) highlight a C source file


chilight [-V ] [-f format ] [-o file ] [-t title ] [-w width ] [file ... ]


The chilight utility colorizes the input file, expected to be written in the C language, with text attributes or markups.

The options are as follows:

-f format
Set the output format to format
The format can be one of: ansi_color ansi_bold html_color html_font roff or tty (the default).
-o file
Set the output destination to file
-t title
Specify the page title for the generated HTML page.
Print version information on standard output then exit.
-w width
Set the tab width for the roff style.
Tabulator characters are converted to suitable amounts of space characters to gain better typographic quality on roff output. Acceptable values are in the range 1..16 which should be ample for most situations.
