  • Spelunkers of the Pod::Simple dist will have noticed the file t/ac_c_extend.t, which tests Pod::Simple's implementation of the =extend directive some months ago we that we discussed adding. It works ...

  • BTW, as I was boggling at the Pod/Man.pm source the other day, I happened on this line: s{ (?: \\s-1 | \b ) PI (?: \\s0 | \b ) } {\\*\(PI}gx; It seems that this turns the standalone word "PI" into ...

  • Dear Perl gurus, I noticed that some changes have been done to e.g. lib/Pod/Checker.pm in the perl-5.8.0 distribution, relative to PodParser-1.18 on CPAN. Who did these changes? There is one that ...

  • Hello, This is a follow up to the previous patch (re: Pod::LaTeX enumeration bug). A friend pointed out that "=item 1." and "=item 1)" are common constructs. So, I made the regex a little more ...

  • [and a discussion of "=for foo bar" ensued] Anything to do with Pod, perldoc, or the pod formatters belongs on the pod-people list, not p5p. But anyway, you happen to have caught me at a great time ...

  • Try this with Pod::ParseUtils which comes with perl 5.8.0: perl -MPod::ParseUtils -e 'warn Pod::Hyperlink- new("Inline::C-Cookbook")- page' returns nothing, but expected was "Inline::C-Cookbook". The ...

  • I'd appreciate if people could give the still nacent Pod::Simple::Checker module a bit of a workout. I eventually want to replace the current (and rather ancient) podchecker with just a little ...

  • So here's a question at the fog-hidden intersection of perldoc-ish things, and dists: I've been encouraged to put the perlpodspec and perlpod in the next Pod-Simple dist. Question is: Where do I put ...
