Pod::Simple::DumpAsXML -- turn Pod into XML
perl -MPod::Simple::DumpAsXML -e \ "exit Pod::Simple::DumpAsXML->filter(shift)->any_errata_seen" \ thingy.pod
Pod::Simple::DumpAsXML is a subclass of Pod::Simple that parses Pod and turns it into indented and wrapped XML. This class is of interest to people writing Pod formatters based on Pod::Simple.
Pod::Simple::DumpAsXML inherits methods from Pod::Simple.
Pod::Simple::XMLOutStream is rather like this class. Pod::Simple::XMLOutStream's output is space-padded in a way that's better for sending to an XML processor (that is, it has no ignoreable whitespace). But Pod::Simple::DumpAsXML's output is much more human-readable, being (more-or-less) one token per line, with line-wrapping.
Pod::Simple::DumpAsText is rather like this class, except that it doesn't dump with XML syntax. Try them and see which one you like best!
