  • And with Term::ANSIColor [] you don't even have to remember or look up what the code for red is :-)

    (I know...why complicate a perfectly simple thing :)

    • Here's a version that uses Term::ANSIColor and takes a -c option to define the colour used.


      use Term::ANSIColor ':constants';
      use Getopt::Std;

      my %opts;
      getopts('c:w:', \%opts);

      $opts{w} ||= shift;
      $opts{c} = eval $opts{c} || RED;

      while (<>) {
        s/\Q$opts{w}\E/$opts{c} . $opts{w} . RESET/ge;

      Might want to add some code checking the contents of $opt{c} before running "eval" on it.
