is a program to convert POD format documentation
(perlpod) into latex. It can process multiple input documents at a
time and either generate a latex file per input document or a single
combined output file.
This section describes the supported command line options. Minimum matching is supported.

Known bugs are:
Cross references between documents are not resolved when multiple
pod documents are converted into a single output
