Perl framework to generate syntax highlighted code


Syntax::Highlight::Engine::Simple provides an easy way to create syntax highlighting modules for various languages. It generates HTML by marking up the input string with "span" tags according the given rules.

New rules can be added using regular expressions, typically in a subclass, allowing this framework to be extended for new languages. It is a simple module, designed to be fast and does not require any external dependencies.

The appearance of keywords or other tokens is easily changed using defined Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) properties.
