That is part of the uncompleted code, if you want to show colors in
--stdio2 (and I think it is worth) then use color_fprintf() like other
stdio code.

For instance, 'perf top --stdio' uses red for hot lines, etc.

The way I am suggesting there will be no if (tui), it will just reuse
the scnprintf routines that are now used in the TUI code, but will only
use fprintf/color_fprintf, etc.

The loop iterating over the annotation_lines you just lift from the tui
code.

And parts that are useful for both and are not yet in __scnprintf form,
then we need to make it so.

No, when in --stdio2 case you either show no jump characters, or you
show them if available, i.e. here are two stdio utilities showing those
arrows:

[root@seventh ~]# cat a.txt
↑ jmp 3f0
[root@seventh ~]# head a.txt
↑ jmp 3f0
[root@seventh ~]#

You just don't need to print the arrows connecting jumps to its targets,
because in a function with a lot of jumps, then it can get messy, but
yeah, that could even be an option, perhaps not the default.

You would have a symbol__stdio2_annotate(), and it would be something
like:


int symbol__stdio2_annotate(FILE *fp)
{
struct annotation *notes;

symbol__annotate(sym, map, evsel, sizeof(struct annotatation_line), NULL);
symbol__calc_percent(sym, evsel);

notes = symbol__annotation(sym);

annotation_lines__fprintf(notes->src->source, fp);
}

Something like that.

We're still discussing what is the best way to implement this.
