Summary0006686: bat (cat replacement)
Descriptioni thought i saw a request for this before but cannot find it again. bat is a cat clone with syntax highlighting and it can act as a pager to also replace less in many cases.
is it possible to get this packaged for kali please? could be helpful when paging through exploits/code to have the highlighting.
Additional Informationcan be installed by cargo after installing the large packages for the rust compiler if needed, but its more challenging to maintain/update this was since cargo doesnt have a function to update things it installs out of the box
