in reply to perltidy in PM posts

I'd love to see syntax highlighting. But then, only if it's using my choice of colours:
  • Background: white.
  • Keywords: black.
  • Variables: black.
  • Comments: black.
  • Strings: black.
  • Operators: black.
  • Semi-colons: #000000.
  • Barewords: black.
  • Here doc terminators: black.
  • The letter 'q': black.
  • __TOKENS__: black.
  • Whitespace: white.
  • Hash bang lines: black.
  • Regular expressions: black.
  • POD: black.
  • Everything else: anti-white.
I think we can all agree that this is the only sensible colouring scheme.

Update: I've gotten many messages from people agreeing with me, but they are too afraid to speak up.

    While it's amusing, and I wouldn't reply at all but for your update, I disagree about the colors and I'm not afraid to do so. The syntax highlighting and general CSS on github is very nice for example.

    There is nothing to disagree with here: only if it's using my choice of colors.

    While I'd like some of the things in this vein that are discussed from time to time, I would never demand it from the unpaid maintainers of the site and I'm too lazy busy to offer patches so… hush mai mouf.

    I love it!

    Let's call it the:
    Hey You Damn Kids with Your Rocky-Roll Music, Floppy Haircuts and Damn Syntax Highlighters, GET OFF MY LAWN!!!
     - Syntax Color Theme.


    Update: *sigh* I don't know how to tell you this but in the 5 minutes since I first posted my support for your new ...GET OFF MY LAWN syntax color theme, I've been inundated with messages from people who say they absolutely HATE it ( I KNOW, I was just as surprised as you! ). They didn't seem too afraid to tell me about it either, just apathetic enough to not bother posting. This happens with innovative artists, they're never appreciated in their time. :(
