App::highlight is a bit like grep, except that it doesn't filter out lines. In exchange for seeing all the output you get a lot more fun highlighting options to play with, and full Perl regex support of course.

I gave this talk at the London.pm technical meeting in July 2013.

App::highlight is available on Github and CPAN.

  • MichaelJemmeson Michael Jemmeson @kaokun thanks for the reply. I couldn't make the talks in the end and didn't see it mentioned in the slides or the module so just thought I'd mention it 8 months ago

  • kaokun Alex Balhatchet, CTO at Lokku @MichaelJemmeson true, I even mentioned that when I was giving the talk :) The first feature App::highlight got that (afaik) grep doesn't have was the multiple colours that it cycles through for each different match. Very handy when you're looking for more than one thing or you're using it in tricks like the svndiff alias. 8 months ago

  • MichaelJemmeson Michael Jemmeson It looks like you have more functionality, but FYI you can do highlighting of the complete file with grep, although it's a side effect really: grep -h --color -E 'foo|$' (that's pipe then dollar) 8 months ago
