This question already has an answer here:
I use my MacBook for my CS class, using terminal. I usually connect to a Linux server via ssh. The servers are super laggy at times so I've decided to just work on projects on my local machine and transfer them later.
I like using the pico editor - don't judge! Pico on my schools server has syntax highlighting. My MacBook (offline) has plain black and white.
How would I go about enabling syntax highlights for pico?
