Official Mirror:
prolix launches a command and captures its standard output and error, suppressing uninteresting lines according to a pattern. Yet unlike grep -v, prolix is an interactive program: When you find that the output you're being shown is still too verbose, simply hit enter and add additional suppression patterns. Suppression patterns can be full or substring line matches as well as regular expressions. You can also apply substitutions to lines, for example shorten overly chatty fields.
