Pod::Text::Ansi - Convert POD to ANSI-colored text
use Pod::Text::Ansi; my $parser = Pod::Text::Ansi->new (sentence => 0, width => 78); # Read POD from STDIN and write to STDOUT. $parser->parse_from_filehandle; # Read POD from file.pod and write to file.txt. $parser->parse_from_file ('file.pod', 'file.txt');
Pod::Text::Ansi is a simple subclass of Pod::Text that highlights output text using ANSI color escape sequences. Apart from the color, it in all ways functions like Pod::Text. See Pod::Text for details and available options.

It currently doesn't respect some forms of nesting.
I<'italic', C<'italic code'>, 'italic'>.
Contrary to what the three terms above say, they will be rendered as italic only, then code only, then normal, respectively.
Non-overlapping nesting such as the following does work, though:
I< C<italic code> >
The wrapping code isn't perfect.
Some formatting codes that stretch over multiple lines will break. One example would be an
L<>code that's too long to fit on one line.
