Pod::Perldoc::ToRtf

NAME

Pod::Perldoc::ToRtf - let Perldoc render Pod as RTF

SYNOPSIS

  1. perldoc -o rtf Some::Modulename

DESCRIPTION

This is a "plug-in" class that allows Perldoc to use Pod::Simple::RTF as a formatter class.

This is actually a Pod::Simple::RTF subclass, and inherits all its options.

You have to have Pod::Simple::RTF installed (from the Pod::Simple dist), or this module won't work.

If Perldoc is running under MSWin and uses this class as a formatter, the output will be opened with write.exe or whatever program is specified in the environment variable RTFREADER . For example, to specify that RTF files should be opened the same as they are when you double-click them, you would do set RTFREADER=start.exe in your autoexec.bat.

Handy tip: put set PERLDOC=-ortf in your autoexec.bat and that will set this class as the default formatter to run when you do perldoc whatever .
