Pod::Simple::XMLOutStream -- turn Pod into XML
perl -MPod::Simple::XMLOutStream -e \ "exit Pod::Simple::XMLOutStream->filter(shift)->any_errata_seen" \ thingy.pod
Pod::Simple::XMLOutStream is a subclass of Pod::Simple that parses Pod and turns it into XML.
Pod::Simple::XMLOutStream inherits methods from Pod::Simple.
Pod::Simple::DumpAsXML is rather like this class; see its documentation for a discussion of the differences.
TODO: An example or two of =extend, then point to Pod::Simple::Subclassing
If you actually want to use Pod as a format that you want to render to XML (particularly if to an XML instance with more elements than normal Pod has), please email me (
firstname.lastname@example.org) and I'll probably have some recommendations.
For reasons of concision and energetic laziness, some methods and options in this module (and the dozen modules it depends on) are undocumented; but one of those undocumented bits might be just what you're looking for.
Questions or discussion about POD and Pod::Simple should be sent to the email@example.com mail list. Send an empty email to firstname.lastname@example.org to subscribe.
Patches against Pod::Simple are welcome. Please send bug reports to <email@example.com>.
