       Pod::Text::Color - Convert POD data to formatted color ASCII text


           use Pod::Text::Color;
           my $parser = Pod::Text::Color->new (sentence => 0, width => 78);

           # Read POD from STDIN and write to STDOUT.

           # Read POD from file.pod and write to file.txt.
           $parser->parse_from_file ('file.pod', 'file.txt');


       Pod::Text::Color 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.

       Term::ANSIColor is used to get colors and therefore must be installed
       to use this module.


       This is just a basic proof of concept.  It should be seriously expanded
       to support configurable coloration via options passed to the
       constructor, and pod2text should be taught about those.

       The current version of this module is always available from its web
       site at <>.  It is also
       part of the Perl core distribution as of 5.6.0.
