NAME

Text::EmacsColor - syntax-highlight code snippets with Emacs

SYNOPSIS

    my $colorer = Text::EmacsColor->new;

    my $html = $colorer->format(
        'my $foo = 42', # code
        'cperl',        # the emacs mode to use (cperl, lisp, haskell, ...)
    );

By default, emacs will exec in --batch mode. If you want to use emacsclient or pass other options to emacs, specify the emacs_command initarg:

    my $colorer = Text::EmacsColor->new( emacs_command => 'emacsclient --eval' );

Note that $html, the return value of format, is an instance of Text::EmacsColor::Result. It stringifies to the HTML-ified text that emacs returns, but also provides other functionality. See Text::EmacsColor::Result for more details.

TODO

auto-detect running emacs and use it

Emacs' highlighting is way better, but this is where I got the name from.

My cperl-mode is the most up-to-date Perl highligher for emacs; get it from http://github.com/jrockway/cperl-mode.
