       Text::WordDiff::ANSIColor - ANSI	colored	formatting for Text::WordDiff

	   use Text::WordDiff;

	   my $diff = word_diff	'file1.txt', 'file2.txt';
	   my $diff = word_diff	\$string1,   \$string2,	  { STYLE => 'ANSIColor' };
	   my $diff = word_diff	\*FH1,	     \*FH2;	  \%options;
	   my $diff = word_diff	\&reader1,   \&reader2;
	   my $diff = word_diff	\@records1,  \@records2;

	   # May also mix input	types:
	   my $diff = word_diff	\@records1,  'file_B.txt';

       This class subclasses Text::WordDiff::Base to provide a formatting
       class for Text::WordDiff	that uses ANSI-standard	terminal escape
       sequences to highlight deleted and inserted text. This formatting class
       is the default class used by Text::WordDiff; see	its documentation for
       details on its interface. This class should never be used directly.

       Text::WordDiff::ANSIColor formats word diffs for	viewing	in an ANSI-
       standard	terminal session. The diff content is highlighted as follows:

	   Deleted words will display in bold-faced red. The ANSI standard for
	   strikethrough is also used, but since it is not supported by	most
	   terminals, likely will not show up.

	   Inserted words will display in bold-faced, underlined green.

       All other content is simply returned.
