This program uses Pod::Markdown to convert POD into Markdown sources.

UTF-8 is the default output encoding if no encoding options are specified (see "Options").

It accepts two optional arguments:



A list of characters to encode as HTML entities. Pass a regexp character class, or 1 to mean control chars, high-bit chars, and "<&>"'".

See "html_encode_chars" in Pod::Markdown for more information.

--match-encoding (-m)

Use the same "=encoding" as the input pod for the output file.

--output-encoding (-e)

Specify the encoding for the output file.

--utf8 (-u)

Alias for "-e UTF-8".

This program is strongly based on "pod2mdwn" from Module::Build::IkiWiki.
