Description : Abstract document tree for Perl POD documents
Pod::Abstract provides an abstract, tree-based interface to POD documents.
POD is a simple-to-use markup language mainly used for writing documentation
for Perl, Perl programs, and Perl modules.
It allows straightforward, round-trip capable manipulation of POD documents,
hence allowing features to be added to POD to support your programming
activities without having to write a whole POD processor.
This also allows an easy tree-based mechanism to write a Pod::<format> type
The package includes a simple, and extensible, command line utility called
"paf" (Pod::Abstract Filter). This program can chain together Pod Abstract
filtering operations, allowing manipulation & extraction of POD documents
from the command line.
The package is a dependency of padre 0.36 and will be maintained by the Debian
