Installing colorgcc in Ubuntu

14 Apr

Using the terminal and a simple text editor is my preferred method of writing code, regardless of the language its a fast and efficient method of testing code with running the overheads of an IDE on my little netbook. But deciphering errors has always been a pain as simple black and white error messages give eyestrain and are difficult to see.

Fortunately for the more tech-savvy they have the option of soft linking the colorgcc module to there compiler commands. But for the like of you and me its been a pain, atleast until quite by fluke I came across the following method of installing the module.

All you do is, go to terminal and type:

sudo apt-get install colorgcc

Thats it, it works wonders and now my error messages come in colour.
