You write that your module is slower than the other highlighters. I would like to test it, but I haven't quite gotten far enough with Perl to work out how to time running scripts (it's on my TO-DO list somewhere).
What kind of performance differences are we looking at here? I've been wanting to implement something like this for my website (specifically C/C++ and a custom script), but slogging through pages and pages of search engine results yielded really great color highlighters. But none, so far, that is a Perl script for highlighting other languages.
At one point, I even wondered if I could utilize the B module, but I fear that's too much of a security risk.
Is it fair to stick a link to my site here?
Thanks for you patience.
