  Description     : modules for parsing/translating POD format documents

This package contains the following mdoules for using Perl5 "pod" (Plain Old

"Pod::Parser", which provides a base class for parsing and selecting sections
of POD documentation from an input stream.

"Pod::Select", which provides a subclass of Pod::Parser and an exported
function named "podselect()" to dump selected sections of raw pod
documentation from an input stream.

"Pod::PlainText", which is a replacement for "Pod::Text" and the
corresponding "pod2text()" function. It is derived from the Pod::Parser
class. As of perl 5.00_58, Pod::PlainText has been re-written by Russ
Allbery, and has been renamed to Pod::Text in the core Perl distribution
(replacing the previous implementation of Pod::Text). The Pod::PlainText
module is still provided with Pod::Parser solely for backward

"Pod::InputObjects": Some input objects needed by Pod::Parser, and for
advanced users of Pod::Parser that need more about a command besides its name
and text.

"Pod::ParseUtils", a module with several object-oriented helpers for POD
parsing and processing. Probably the most important is Pod::Hyperlink for
parsing and expanding POD hyperlinks L<...>.

This distribution is considered to be legacy - it has been superseded by
Pod::Simple which brings more robustness, unicode and various other benefits.
It has been removed from perl core after 5.31.0, and is packaged only for
backward compatibility.

The package will be maintained under the umbrella of the Debian Perl Group.

Generated with the help of dpt-gen-itp(1) from pkg-perl-tools.
