Syntax::Highlight::Perl - but Im not sure its a good idea..

I think it is a very good idea, as long as it is a user setting and done using CSS. I know I would love and enable the feature as soon as I can.

Here is the code I use at

perl => sub { require Syntax::Highlight::Perl; my ($data) = @_; my $hl = Syntax::Highlight::Perl->new; $hl->define_substitution( '<' => '&lt;', '>' => '&gt;', '&' => '&amp;', "\t" => '&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nb +sp;', ' ' => '&nbsp;', ); $hl->set_format( $_ => [ "<span class=$_>", "</span>" ] ) for qw/Comment Directive Label Quote String Subroutine + Variable Keyword Builtin Operator Package Number CodeTer +m Symbol DATA/; return '<link rel=stylesheet href="/perl.css"><pre>' . $hl->format_string($data) . '</pre>'; },
I use this together with This code using this style sheet renders as (link dies after 30 days).
