NAME ^

Badger::Rainbow - colour functionality

SYNOPSIS ^

    use Badger::Rainbow ANSI => 'red green blue';
    
    print red("This is red");
    print green("This is green");
    print blue("This is blue");

DESCRIPTION ^

This module implements colour-related functionality. It is currently only used for debugging purposes but may be extended in the future.

EXPORTABLE ITEMS ^

ANSI_escape($code, $line1, $line2, ...)

This function applies an ANSI escape code to each line of text, with the effect of colouring output on compatible terminals.

    use Badger::Rainbow 'ANSI_escape';
    print ANSI_escape(31, 'Hello World');     # 31 is red

strip_ANSI_escapes($text)

This function removes any ANSI escapes from the text passed as an argument.

ANSI

This is an export hook which allows you to import subroutines which apply the correct ANSI escape codes to render text in colour on compatible terminals.

    use Badger::Rainbox ANSI => 'red green blue';
    
    print red("This is red");
    print green("This is green");
    print blue("This is blue");

Available colours are: black, red, green, yellow, blue, magenta, cyan and white. The bold and dark styles can also be specified.

    use Badger::Rainbox ANSI => 'dark bold red green blue';
    
    print bold red "Hello World\n";
    print dark blue "Hello Badger\n";

Colours and styles can be specified as a single whitespace-delimited string or as a reference to a list of individual items.

    use Badger::Rainbox ANSI => 'red green blue';
    use Badger::Rainbox ANSI => ['red', 'green', 'blue'];
