I’ve released ack 2.28 to the CPAN. This release doesn’t add any major
new features, but for those who like to customize things, there are two new help options:
--help-colors option shows a chart of various color combinations using the standard eight ANSI terminal colors.
--help-rgb-colors option shows a grid of the 216 colors possible using RGB color specifications.
Thanks to Bill Ricker for his work in getting the RGB color chart organized in a useful way, via the Convert::Color module.
ack is available on the CPAN, and also as a single-file download at beyondgrep.com.
Let me know if you find it useful.
