in reply to How to change the color of the text

instead of using print
I don't understand your restriction, but I have used Term::ANSIColor

    I've inserted the ANSI code and it should display the whole output in another color correct? However it does not. What am I missing? Thanks.

    #!/usr/bin/perl use Term::ANSIColor qw(:constants); print GREEN, open (FILE, "railcardata.txt"); while (<FILE>) { chomp; ($roadname, $roadnumber, $cartype, $interrr) = split(":"); write; } close (FILE); format STDOUT_TOP = ====================================================================== ROAD NAME ROAD NUMBER CAR TYPE INTERCHANGE RAILROAD ====================================================================== . format STDOUT = @<<<<<<<<<<<<< @<<<<<<<<<<<<<< @<<<<<<<<<<<<<< @<<<<<<<<<<< $roadname, $roadnumber, $cartype, $interrr . sleep 12;

      I've used ANSI also with great success...however I am stuck in this scenario no matter how I try and code it ANSI doesn't take...any suggestions in the code? thanks

      Maybe you ought to show that code?

      Does your terminal support ANSI escapes?

      "ANSI doesn't take"

      What do you mean by that?
