theme sensitive color schemes that need to be addressed for such an endeavour...

This can be addressed by doing the coloring in CSS; post processing (using the Syntax::Highlight::Perl keywords for classes):

<code class="perl"><span class="Directive">print</span> <span class="Quote">"</span><span class="String">Hello world...

Then everything is still black unless you have a style sheet with code.perl > .Directive { ... } etc. and each style could have its own code styles companion.

As much as I'd like to see it, it does seem like a big headache, it would mostly only improve readability of longer code, and even using the faster methods available, it would slow things down a bit.

Oh, and this node, already listed below by cchampion doesn't mention that Perl::Tidy is customizable with its "formatter" arg to perltidy() though it's difficult to use.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
