NAME ^

Syntax::Highlight::HTML - Highlight HTML syntax

VERSION ^

Version 0.04

SYNOPSIS ^

    use Syntax::Highlight::HTML;

    my $highlighter = new Syntax::Highlight::HTML;
    $output = $highlighter->parse($html);

If $html contains the following HTML fragment:

    <!-- a description list -->
    <dl compact="compact">
      <dt>some word</dt>
      <dd>the description of the word. Plus some <a href="/definitions/other_word"
      >reference</a> towards another definition. </dd>
    </dl>

then the resulting HTML contained in $output will render like this:

    <!-- a description list -->
    <dl compact="compact">
      <dt>some word</dt>
      <dd>the description of the word. Plus some <a href="/definitions/other_word"
      >reference</a> towards another definition. </dd>
    </dl>

DESCRIPTION ^

This module is designed to take raw HTML input and highlight it (using a CSS stylesheet, see "Notes" for the classes). The returned HTML code is ready for inclusion in a web page.

It is intented to be used as an highlighting filter, and as such does not reformat or reindent the original HTML code.

METHODS ^

new()

The constructor. Returns a Syntax::Highlight::HTML object, which derives from HTML::Parser. As such, any HTML::parser method can be called on this object (that is, expect for parse() which is overloaded here).

Options

  • nnn - Activate line numbering. Default value: 0 (disabled).
  • pre - Surround result by <pre>...</pre> tags. Default value: 1 (enabled).

Example

To avoid surrounding the result by the <pre>...</pre> tags:

    my $highlighter = Syntax::Highlight::HTML->new(pre => 0);
parse()

Parse the HTML code given in argument and returns the highlighted HTML code, ready for inclusion in a web page.

Example

    $highlighter->parse("<p>Hello, world.</p>");

Internals Methods

The following methods are for internal use only.

_highlight_tag()

HTML::Parser tags handler: highlights a tag.

_highlight_text()

HTML::Parser text handler: highlights text.

NOTES ^

The resulting HTML uses CSS to colourize the syntax. Here are the classes that you can define in your stylesheet.

An example stylesheet can be found in eg/html-syntax.css.

EXAMPLE ^

Here is an example of generated HTML output. It was generated with the script eg/highlight.pl.

The following HTML fragment (which is the beginning of http://search.cpan.org/~saper/)

    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
    <html>
     <head>

CAVEATS ^

Syntax::Highlight::HTML relies on HTML::Parser for parsing the HTML and therefore suffers from the same limitations.
