Pod::Text::Color(Perl Programmers Reference GPod::Text::Color(3p)


NAME
       Pod::Text::Color - Convert POD data to formatted color
       ASCII text

SYNOPSIS
           use Pod::Text::Color;
           my $parser = Pod::Text::Color->new (sentence => 0, width => 78);

           # Read POD from STDIN and write to STDOUT.
           $parser->parse_from_filehandle;

           # Read POD from file.pod and write to file.txt.
           $parser->parse_from_file ('file.pod', 'file.txt');

DESCRIPTION
       Pod::Text::Color is a simple subclass of Pod::Text that
       highlights output text using ANSI color escape sequences.
       Apart from the color, it in all ways functions like
       Pod::Text.  See Pod::Text for details and available
       options.

       Term::ANSIColor is used to get colors and therefore must
       be installed to use this module.

BUGS
       This is just a basic proof of concept.  It should be seri-
       ously expanded to support configurable coloration via
       options passed to the constructor, and pod2text should be
       taught about those.

       The current version of this module is always available
       from its web site at <http://www.eyrie.org/~eagle/soft-
       ware/podlators/>.  It is also part of the Perl core dis-
       tribution as of 5.6.0.
