Pod::Html

See the current Perl documentation for Pod::Html.

Here is our local, out-dated (pre-5.6) version:


Pod::Html - module to convert pod files to HTML



    use Pod::Html;
    pod2html([options]);



Converts files from pod format (see perlpod) to HTML format. It can automatically generate indexes and cross-references, and it keeps a cache of things it knows how to cross-reference.


ARGUMENTS

Pod::Html takes the following arguments:

help

    --help

Displays the usage message.

htmlroot

    --htmlroot=name

Sets the base URL for the HTML files. When cross-references are made, the HTML root is prepended to the URL.

infile

    --infile=name

Specify the pod file to convert. Input is taken from STDIN if no infile is specified.

outfile

    --outfile=name

Specify the HTML file to create. Output goes to STDOUT if no outfile is specified.

podroot

    --podroot=name

Specify the base directory for finding library pods.

podpath

    --podpath=name:...:name

Specify which subdirectories of the podroot contain pod files whose HTML converted forms can be linked-to in cross-references.

libpods

    --libpods=name:...:name

List of page names (eg, ``perlfunc'') which contain linkable =items.

netscape

    --netscape

Use Netscape HTML directives when applicable.

nonetscape

    --nonetscape

Do not use Netscape HTML directives (default).

index

    --index

Generate an index at the top of the HTML file (default behaviour).

noindex

    --noindex

Do not generate an index at the top of the HTML file.

recurse

    --recurse

Recurse into subdirectories specified in podpath (default behaviour).

norecurse

    --norecurse

Do not recurse into subdirectories specified in podpath.

title

    --title=title

Specify the title of the resulting HTML file.

verbose

    --verbose

Display progress messages.


EXAMPLE

    pod2html("pod2html",
             "--podpath=lib:ext:pod:vms", 
             "--podroot=/usr/src/perl",
             "--htmlroot=/perl/nmanual",
             "--libpods=perlfunc::perlguts:perlvar:perlrun:perlop",
             "--recurse",
             "--infile=foo.pod",
             "--outfile=/perl/nmanual/foo.html");
