Syntax highlighting for search.cpan.org
If you're like me, you probably spend a lot of time looking at search.cpan.org. Occasionally I'll pull up
perldoc directly in the terminal, but I love reading docs in the browser.
I also love syntax highlighting. To some, it's superfluous. To others, it's downright confusing. But for those of us who use it all day every day, it's an essential tool that helps us read and understand code more quickly and with less effort.
It's always been a minor complaint that search.cpan.org does not put syntax highlighting on the perldocs.
Of course there are other sites that do, but I'll confess to using Google most often to look up Perl modules. And in the land of search results, search.cpan.org is king.
So without further ado, I'm happy to say that search.cpan.org has syntax highlighting. :) If you scroll to the bottom of any rendered document, you will find a dropdown menu to choose your color scheme. I recommend the "cpan" color scheme.
And if you hate syntax highlighting, don't get your panties in a bunch: "no syntax highlighting" is the default choice.
