The straight diff between podlators 2.0.6 and 2.1.2 is fairly substantial
(32 files changed, 609 insertions(+), 289 deletions(-)), but quite a lot
of that is documentation changes, test suite improvements to catch the
problems that were fixed, and that sort of thing. The baseline, which
still includes quite a few documentation changes and some reformatting,
lib/Pod/Man.pm | 175 ++++++++++++++++++++++++---------------------
scripts/pod2man.PL | 95 ++++++++++++++----------
I haven't yet tried to extract out just the code changes; it's
unfortunately not completely trivial since we still do need the
documentation change to include the --utf8 option. I suspect that it
would be around 100 lines of total diff.
