DESCRIPTION

The Fn einfo family of functions provide a simple informational output that is colorised. Basically Fn einfo , Fn ewarn and Fn eerror behave exactly like Fn printf but prefix the output with a colored *. The function called denotes the color used with Fn einfo being green, Fn ewarn being yellow and Fn eerror being red. einfo goes to stdout and the others go to stderr. The number of real characters printed is returned. Fn ebegin is identical to Fn einfo except that 3 dots are appended to the output.

Fn einfov , Fn ewarnv and Fn ebeginv work the same way to Fn einfo , Fn ewarn , and Fn ebegin respectively, but only work when EINFO_VERBOSE is true. You can also make the Fn einfo , Fn ewarn , and Fn ebegin functions silent by setting EINFO_QUIET to true.

These functions are designed to output a whole line, so they also append a newline to the string. To stop this behaviour, you can use the functions Fn einfon , Fn ewarnn , Fn eerrorn , Fn einfovn , Fn ewarnvn , and Fn ebeginvn .

Fn eend , Fn ewend , Fn eendv and Fn ewendv are the counterparts to the above functions. If Fa retval is zero then ok in green is printed in a bracket at the end of the prior line. Otherwise we print the formatted string using Fn error (or Fn ewarn if Fn ewend is called) !! in red (or yellow if Fn ewend is called) is printed in a bracket at the end of the line. The value of Fa retval is returned.

Fn ebracket does the same as Fn eend but prints Fa msg instead of ok or !! in the color Fa color at the column Fa col .

Fn eindent indents subsequent calls to the above functions by 3 characters. Fn eoutdent removes an Fn eindent . Fn eindentv and Fn eoutdentv only work when EINFO_VERBOSE is true.

Fn eprefix prefixes the string Fa prefix to the above functions.  

IMPLEMENTATION NOTES

einfo can optionally be linked against the Lb libtermcap so that we can correctly query the connected console for our color and cursor escape codes. If not, then we have a hard coded list of terminals we know about that support the commonly used codes for color and cursor position.  

ENVIRONMENT

EINFO_QUIET when set to true makes the Fn einfo and Fn einfon family of functions quiet, so nothing is printed. EERROR_QUIET when set to true makes the Fn eerror and Fn eerrorn family of functions quiet, so nothing is printed.

EINFO_VERBOSE when set to true makes the Fn einfov and Fn einfovn family of functions work, so they do print.  

FILES

/etc/init.d/functions.sh is provided by OpenRC, which allows shell scripts to use the above functions. For historical reasons our verbose functions are prefixed with v instead of suffixed. So einfov becomes veinfo, einfovn becomes veinfon. Rinse and repeat for the other verbose functions.
