 Description     : trim output from chatty commands

prolix launches a command and captures its standard output and error. It
suppresses uninteresting lines. Unlike grep -v, it is an interactive program;
hit enter to add suppression patterns as new anoyances come up on your
terminal. You can weed out by full or substring line matches, as well as
regexp. You can also apply substitutions to lines, for example shorten
overly chatty fields.
