	* ANSIColor.pm: Add bright versions of the basic eight foreground

	* ANSIColor.pm: Add an example of checking color attributes by
	catching exceptions from color() to the documentation.

	* ANSIColor.pm: Add FAINT as a synonym for DARK and export it when
	constants are requested.
	* t/basic.t: Test faint and FAINT as a synonym for dark/DARK.

	* ANSIColor.pm: Version 2.01 released.

	* t/basic.t: Test error handling in color, colored, and uncolor.

	* ANSIColor.pm (uncolor): When reporting errors for bad escape
	sequences, don't include the leading \e[ or trailing m in the
	error message.

	* ANSIColor.pm: Add section headings to the DESCRIPTION section of
	the module since it's getting rather long.
	(colorstrip): New function to remove ANSI color codes from
	strings.  Thanks, Paul Miller.
	* t/basic.t: New tests for colorstrip.

	* ANSIColor.pm (AUTOLOAD): Untaint $AUTOLOAD, required by Perl
	5.10 when running in taint mode.  Thanks, Tim Bellinghausen.

	* Makefile.PL: Add LICENSE to the distribution metadata for Perl
	5.10 and later.

	* ANSIColor.pm: Add explicit return statements instead of relying
	on the implicit return of the last expression.  Use all caps for
	all global variables.

	* ANSIColor.pm: Add the new functions to a :pushpop export tag.
	(PUSHCOLOR): New function that stores in an internal stack the
	attributes that are being set.
	(POPCOLOR): New function that pops the attributes being set and
	sets the attributes previously found on the stack.
	(LOCALCOLOR): New function that surrounds its argument in
	(AUTOLOAD): If $AUTOLOCAL is set, surround all color constants
	with an implicit LOCALCOLOR.

	* t/pod-spelling.t: Rewrite to use Test::More.  Support and prefer

	* ANSIColor.pm: Fix additional spelling errors and rewrap the POD
	documentation to a 74-character margin.

	* t/basic.t: Rewrite to use Test::More.
	* t/pod.t: Likewise.

	* ANSIColor.pm (AUTOLOAD): If ANSI_COLORS_DISABLED is set, return
	the stringified arguments rather than creating a sub.  This allows
	colors to work later if ANSI_COLORS_DISABLED is unset rather than
	making its effects permanent.  It also avoids adding a reset
	escape sequence when $AUTORESET and ANSI_COLORS_DISABLED are both

2006-06-22  Russ Allbery  <rra@stanford.edu>

	* ANSIColor.pm: Clarify in the documentation the behavior of
	terminals when background colors are set across newlines, and

	the terminal.  Fix a couple of spelling errors.

	* test.pl: Moved to...
	* t/basic.t: ...here.
	* t/pod.t: New test for POD validity.

	uncolor.  Document ANSI_COLORS_DISABLED.  Add information about

	* Makefile.PL: Install in the Perl library directory for Perl
	versions >= 5.6.0.

	* test.pl: Added a new test for the array reference syntax for

	* ANSIColor.pm: Changed $VERSION to a static string.  Added dark
	to the attributes.  Updated the documentation to include a table
	of supported attributes on different terminal emulators, to add
	dark, to document the new optional way to call colored, and to

	(colored): Allow the attributes to be passed as an initial array
	reference as well as a final list, and for that calling syntax

1998-11-27  Russ Allbery  <rra@stanford.edu>

	* ANSIColor.pm: Version 1.02 released.

	* Makefile.PL: Added a 5.005-only section giving ABSTRACT and
	AUTHOR settings for generating a PPD to go with a binary
	distribution or the Perl Resource Kits.

1998-04-14  Russ Allbery  <rra@stanford.edu>

	* ANSIColor.pm: croak() instead of die() on AUTOLOAD failure to
	get the right error text, fixed a bunch of typos in the
	documentation, added a quote.

1997-12-10  Russ Allbery  <rra@stanford.edu>

	* ANSIColor.pm: Version 1.01 released.

	* ANSIColor.pm (color): Carp::croak() isn't predeclared, so it
	needs parens around its argument.  This bug will only show up in
	versions of Perl >5.004_04 since up until then strict.pm imports
	Carp which predeclares the function.

1997-11-29  Russ Allbery  <rra@stanford.edu>

	* ANSIColor.pm: Version 1.00 released.

	* Makefile.PL: Now gets version information from the module, has
	the correct rules to build a distribution.

	* test.pl: Comments trimmed, minor test modifications.

	* ANSIColor.pm: Changed my e-mail address, fixed to deal correctly
	with trailing delimiters when EACHLINE is being used, die()
	changed to croak() if the caller uses an invalid attribute name,
	getting $VERSION from RCS updated to my current method, source

	* ANSIColor.pm: Version 0.8 released.

	* test.pl: Fixed the test numbering in the BEGIN block.

	* test.pl: Reformatted and commented to fit my programming style.

	that it will always have two digits after the decimal point.

	* test.pl: New file.

	* ANSIColor.pm: [Revision 0.7] Changed the codes so that reset is
	always consistantly "\e[0m".

	* ANSIColor.pm: [Revision 0.6] Added $EACHLINE and support to
	colored() for it so that attributes can be reset around every
	newline (or other line delimiter -- we're flexible).  Documented
	this as well.

	* ANSIColor.pm: [Revision 0.5] Changed implementation of the
	constants to autoloaded subs, added the $AUTORESET variable for
	use with the constants, and documented this.

1996-12-07  Russ Allbery  <rra@stanford.edu>

	* ANSIColor.pm: [Revision 0.4] Added POD documentation.

	* ANSIColor.pm: [Revision 0.3] Added constant forms, modified to
