Command of the Week
(New or interesting aspects of GHS that you may not know about)

This "classic" boxing style can be replaced with a fancier black-and-white look by starting with REPORT /BOX:BW instead:

But the real wonder and the glory arises when you're asking for some COLOR! Just start opening report files using REPORT /BOX:COLOR and all your report output will be magically transformed:

That's like Dorothy stepping out of the black-and-white land of Kansas into the technicolor Wonderful World of Oz!
