Easily highlight any given substring in a specified text with one of the provided colors with the help of this lightweight command-line utility
As its name clearly states, Highlight Text is a utility created with the sole purpose of helping users to highlight texts. More to the point, it’s a command-line utility that uses a series of commands and colors to highlight the given substrings in a specified text.
The application does not require installation and can be launched via the CMD (short for the Windows Command Prompt).
It provides a series of options, easily accessible via a series of commands. For example -t is for highlighting text, -c is for choosing both the foreground and the background color, -s to make the highlighted section case sensitive, -l to highlight a series of special words.
Users can also use the -h function to access the app’s help, and -V to see the version and license. The available colors include red, green, blue, cyan, magenta, yellow, Gray, White, and their light and dark counterparts (such as Lightred, Darkred, and so forth).
It’s also worth noting the fact that text can be given any command line and or be redirected from an external command via a pipe. Thus, users can provide multiple text values in any combination with the options.
