FWIW, 'less -R' should do better than plain 'less'.
But still, this is an annoying problem I know no standard solution for;
IMO there really should exist a utility to strip such ANSI control
sequences. The best I've found so far is a small program by James
Carlson, see the usenet thread "VT100 to text utility" at .
Hmm, Joey, do you think something like this would qualify for moreutils?
