ColorLogs log colorizing script - my version

Finally got round to publishing my log colorizing script 'ColorLogs'.

It's available here on GitHub: http://github.com/memorius/colorlogs

This is a perl script intended to have command output piped through it to a terminal, and allows easy creation of new highlighting configurations using simple text matches, globs or regular expressions. See the readme for instructions - very simple to use.

My version started as a fork of v1.1 from here, but I've made numerous improvements since then. It's become an essential tool for me when running ant, maven and various other programs in the terminal.

Please feel free to use it, modify it, etc. You can also send me your custom highlighting config files - I'll be happy to put them in my repository for others to use.
