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;
      "ANSI doesn't take"

      What do you mean by that?

      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?
