This module is needed on Win32 to color the output. It is required at line 500 (not sure how you missed it!).

Neither do I. I looked at it with the 'less' pager and used the search function of less to look for ANSI. I have no idea why I got no match - now I'm doing the same, I can clearly find it.

Failing that, add $ENV{PEG_NO_WIN32_CONSOLE_ANSI} = 1 to your file and this will stop you seeing the error message.

Wouldn't it make sense to eval {} the loading of the ANSI module and simply switch off colouring if the module is not available? You do it at one place, but not at the other (which makes me wonder why you require the module twice.
