While learning about the creation of man pages, I came across something that I had not considered before, man page in color? This can be done with a little installation of most.
Using a CentOS 6 minimal install, most can be installed via yum.
yum install -y most
Add most to the environment.
export PAGER=&quot;/usr/bin/most -s&quot;
Check out the man pages in color.
