Syntax highlighting for CPANby ELISHEVA (Prior)

CPAN has a new feature on CPAN: Syntax highlighting!
If you scroll down to the very bottom of each CPAN documentation page, right above the footer you should see a drop-down box labeled "Syntax Highlighting". The drop down box gives you a choice of color schemes.
If you don't see the box at first, be sure to do a complete page refresh. The box is a new feature and may not be visible if your cache is stale.
Also make sure you are all the way down at the bottom on the page. The drop down box is attached to the footer, not the bottom of the browser window. I haven't tried them all, but so far I like the level of contrast with berries-light. YMMV of course.
For more information, see Syntax Highlighting for CPAN.
Note: this announcement is thanks to jmcnamara who alerted us to this feature today in the cb but didn't have time to write up a Perl News item and asked if someone would do it for him.
