In that case I suspect you're using a terminal which doesn't support colours.

If "echo $TERM" tells you any sort of "xterm", "vt100", "crt" or "dumb" then 
you won't get colour.



Late in 1972 President Richard Nixon announced that the rate of increase of 
inflation was decreasing.   This was the first time a sitting president used a 
third derivative to advance his case for re-election.
