@@ -20,6 +20,9 @@ magenta, white, default or random. First character of color name in upper
case denotes increased intensity, whereas for lower case colors will be of
normal intensity. If "none" is chosen, no escape sequences will be emitted.
.PP
+Color escape sequences are added per each line, hence colored lines can be
+safely extracted.
+.PP
When de-colorizing text, \-\-clean omits color escape sequences which
were emitted by colorize, whereas \-\-clean\-all omits all valid ones.
If in doubt, consider using \-\-clean\-all.
