In linux this seems to be working great..

GREP_OPTIONS='--color=auto' ; export GREP_OPTIONS

now sure how to achieve this in freebsd.. can someone help me to get 'color' matched pattern in freebsd

this is what I get in freebsd..

$grep --color=auto
grep: unrecognized option `--color=auto'
Usage: grep [OPTION]... PATTERN [FILE]...
Try `grep --help' for more information.

instead of color use colour...

So,

$grep --colour=auto

should work :-)

This is my grep version:

grep --version
grep (GNU grep) 2.5.1-FreeBSD

This is the output when I use --colour:

grep --colour=auto file *
d:upload_max_filesize => 2M => 2M
d:Supported handlers => cdb cdb_make inifile flatfile
d:Supported filetypes => JPEG,TIFF
d:fileinfo
d:fileinfo support => enabled
etc...

And file is highlighted nicely.

What version do you use? Did you do a:
man grep

To check if your version does/ does not support the --colour option?

If not, maybe it's time to update your version...
