Is there a way we can change the color of say command. What I intend to do is compare two files and if they're unequal, then at the console the contents of two files must be displayed but in different colors say green for file1 and red for file2.

No. REXX has no control over the terminal screen. TSO does, but I've honestly never seen or heard of a TSO process that involved color.

The only facility that I can think of is to use an ISPF panel for your output display. You CAN define colors for fields in a panel definition.

I prefer to use the editor and then use the COMPARE command to show the differences with another file. I think it uses SUPERC under the covers.

Instead of side-by-side, they lines are interleaved, with only changes being highlighted.

========
If you really want to use SAY:
Code:

/*rexx */                       
Say              'HELLO, WORLD!'
Say '1D60'x ||   'HELLO, WORLD!'
Say '1D38'x ||   'HELLO, WORLD!'
Say '1DC8'x ||   'HELLO, WORLD!'
Say '1D40'x ||   'HELLO, WORLD!'

but probably not supported to use Say in this way.
