smack has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Greetings Monks;

I have been working a bit with Win32::Console::ANSI. It seems to be a nice module, however, I can't figure out how to get it to change the foreground/text color for the entire screen. I have managed to print text in different colors with lines like this:
print colored ("White on Blue.\n", 'White on_blue');
I want to be able to set themes for entire scripts though, without calling system("color"). Any help would be greatly appreciated!
