ANSI Color In Mac OS X 10.4

By default when connecting over ssh to my Mac OS X 10.4 box (using bash shell), there’s no ANSI color. Sometimes it’s pretty handy to have. I keep forgetting how to turn it on.

To add, put the following in the .profile file in your home directory:

TERM=xterm-color; export TERM

Now when I ssh in, I get ANSI color goodness.

Hopefully next time I’ll just look for this post.
