Re: [multitail] multitail -c unreadable colors

Thank you René. All the color settings appear to control how keywords and patterns are colored. But I'm interested in controlling the allowed combinations (foreground and background) of colors when using the -c option. 

This config variable looked promising but I don't notice any effect when I set it:

bright: 0

Am I missing the point?

It looks like multitail -ts /some/file will serve my needs well enough anyway.

There are many ways, one is general, and there is the option to
customize for a single log, or "color scheme".

The file /etc/multitail.conf has all the settings, and comments
documenting just about everything (the real documentation is actually
the man page).
