How to display the text in Bold and Underline in Linux

abu sittik | 03:42 |


 To display the test in "BOLD" and "UNDERLINE", the following ANSI Escape Sequences can be used.

To display the text in BOLD
$ echo -e "\033[1mThis is a BOLD line\033[0m"
This is a BOLD line

#Using tput
$ tput bold
$ echo "This"     #BOLD
$ tput sgr0     #Reset text attributes to normal without clear.
$ echo "This"     #NORMAL

To display the text in UNDERLINE
$ echo -e "\033[4mThis is an underlined line.\033[0m"
This is an underlined line.
