in reply to See if it exists before I reinvent it

It could be that it exists. Maybe not in the exact form you're imagining, but ...

I found these:

  1. colordiff, a Perl script to colorize diff output (but in ANSI console)
  2. Convert diff output to colorized HTML, a bash script

As for namespace, I'd think in the direction of "Text::Diff::Colorized::HTML", which is quite a mouthful.

    I am actually using the code at your #2 in a pipeline. That is going to be my jumping off point for he module. I'll check out colordiff also. Thanks.

[stevieb]: heh, yeah, sorry. This is integration testing for certain. In fact, it's even Continuous Integration ;)
[stevieb]: Obviously, Travis CI just won't cut it for these distributions...
[stevieb]: I went on my merry way writing a cross-platform, network-aware system that works across Perlbrew and Berrybrew systems and runs unit tests for Perl dists on all installed versions, with the ability to manage *brew commands themselves
[stevieb]: That worked out exceptionally well, as when I started that project, I hadn't delved into hardware development yet.
