Have you been able to use this successfully in Windows cmd.exe? I have tried but it did not work (at least in Windows 7 that I have).

    No, sorry but I don't run windows. I thought it worked to some limited extent on windows, but I guess I'm wrong.

    Same problem as hdb; may be user-error, but I can't recall ever (on M$ osen) making Term::ANSIColor work as advertized.

    If you didn't program your executable by toggling in binary, it wasn't really programming!

      I haven't tried doing colored text in a Windows command prompt before. However, I know that Damian Conway's Regexp::Debugger module is definitely creating colored text within a command prompt on Windows 7. It looks like he's using Win32::Console::ANSI to get the colored text to show up in the command prompt.

        Thanks a lot this works for me. Example I tried from the documentation:

        use Win32::Console::ANSI; print "\e[1;34mThis text is bold blue.\e[0m\n"; print "This text is normal.\n"; print "\e[33;45;1mBold yellow on magenta.\e[0m\n"; print "This text is normal.\n";
