Title: Windows 10 CMD prompt, colors
Post by: jporkkahtc on August 23, 2018, 07:03:16 pm
Windows 10 CMD prompt now supports "<esc>[xxm" sequences for colors.

Slick "build" window doesn't like this.
I have this env-var set: prompt=$E[91m$p$g$E[0m
In the slick build window, I get a prompt like this:
C:\>cd temp

C:\Temp>

Ugly.

The Slick cmd prompt should support colors, or at least strip out these sequences.

I've been wanting these colors for a long time too:

Beta 3 will temporarily modify the PROMPT environment variable if there are escapes in it.

Color support would be better though
