I find difficult to read some debug log messages which have indenting structure with rqt_console. I can see the log messages in the terminal with the node parameter output="screen" in the launch file, but I need to exclude some other interfering messages by message contents. Is there any way of doing this exclude filtering but showing on the terminal? As last resource I can change the code for the package I'm testing but I would prefer to not do that as this is a third party ROS package. A command line rqt_console would do the job. does this exists? any suggestions?

Luckily the interfering messages came from a subpackage, so I've been able to change the loging severity for that subpackage and now I can see in the terminal the messages which indenting structure I wanted to monitor. However, I would still like to know if there is a way or a tool to show the messages in the terminal and filter then by other criteria besides package.subpackage, as you can do with rqt_console
