Symptom:

When using InTime, you encounter strange characters like [[32m, [[34m, [[0m (see below)

or similar in the log file or terminal console output.

This is because these are ANSI escape sequences to display separate colors to differentiate INFO, WARNING, ERROR messages.

Resolution:

Starting from v2022.1.2, add an -stdout nocolor argument to remove these ANSI escape sequences when starting InTime in batch or console mode.

[user@host ~]$ cd <InTime installation directory/
[user@host ~]$ ./intime.sh -stdout nocolor
