Description: ------------ Upper and bottom lines of the table are generated with wrong length when printing colored data. Test script: --------------- <?php require_once "Console/Color.php"; require_once "Console/Table.php"; $t = new Console_Table(); $t->addRow(array(Console_Color::convert("%bI am Blue%n"))); print $t->getTable(); ?> Expected result: ---------------- +-------------+ | I am Blue | +-------------+ Actual result: -------------- +--------------------+ | I am Blue | +--------------------+

Color coding on terminals is adding escape characters to the colored strings. There is no means in Console_Table to determine whether a character is a control (escape) character, or a "real" character.

you could for example rely on Console_Color::strip()[1] to wipe out the ANSI color codes from the string when calculating its length. This of course could be enabled by a new option. [1]

If you want I can provide a patch as soon as I get home.
