pom2 - Man Page

convert POD to Text, HTML, etc., with Pod::POM


    pom2 text MyFile.pm > MyFile.txt
    pom2 html MyFile.pm > MyFile.html
    pom2 pod  MyFile.pm > Myfile.pod

    pom2 format [options] MyFile.pm > Myfile.xyz


This script uses Pod::POM to convert a Pod document into text, HTML, back into Pod (e.g. to normalise a document to fix any  markup errors), or any other format for which you have a view module.

If the viewer is not one of the viewers bundled with Pod::POM, the script searches for an installed Pod::POM::View module that matches the specified format.  For example if you have Pod::POM::View::DocBook installed then you could say:

    pod2 docbook MyFile.pm > MyFile.xml

If any options other than --help are specified then they are passed to the constructor method of the view class.  For example:

    pod2 docbook --root=chapter --titlecasing MyFile.pm > MyFile.xml

would convert the Pod document to a DocBook chapter document with the titlecasing option enabled.  Note that any string prefixed by "--" is taken as a valid option and passed to the constructor; if no value is specified then a value of 1 is passed in.
