Hello Nige,

Thanks for that, it looks useful.

A few minor points:

  • Although your code is, in fact, strict-compliant, it would be better to make this explicit with use strict;
  • Since you’re not using the list returned by map, it would probably be clearer to use a for loop here:
    s/^(0x|#)(.{6})/$2/ for @hexSs;
  • The statement print "</TR>\n</TR>" is probably meant to be print "</TR>\n<TR>" (i.e. ending the last table row and beginning another)
  • When comparing numbers, use > rather than gt (which is for stringwise comparison)
  • Although the comparison is with 4, the logic actually prints 6 cells per row. I think the following is clearer:
    my $cell = 0; for my $hex (@hexSs) { print "<TD BGCOLOR='#$hex'>", "<FONT COLOR='white'>$hex</FONT><BR /><BR />", "<FONT COLOR='black'>$hex</FONT></TD>"; if (++$cell >= 6) { $cell = 0; print "</TR>\n<TR>"; } }

Hope that helps,
