    That doesn't look very assuring

    $ podchecker /pro/bin/plp /pro/bin/plp pod syntax OK. $ pod2latex -full -out plp /pro/bin/plp Unknown sequence A</td> at /pro/bin/pod2latex line 218. Unknown sequence D</a> at /pro/bin/pod2latex line 218. Unknown sequence D</a> at /pro/bin/pod2latex line 218. Unknown sequence N</a> at /pro/bin/pod2latex line 218. Unknown sequence U</a> at /pro/bin/pod2latex line 218. Unknown sequence O</a> at /pro/bin/pod2latex line 218. Unknown sequence U</a> at /pro/bin/pod2latex line 218. Unknown sequence A</a> at /pro/bin/pod2latex line 218. Unknown sequence D</a> at /pro/bin/pod2latex line 218. Escape sequence /a not recognised at line 2407 of file /pro/bin/plp Unknown sequence M</a> at /pro/bin/pod2latex line 218. ... and a lot more $ latex2man plp.tex plp.man latex2man: in line 37 Arguments of \subsection are not contained in a single line +. Remember: all arguments of a macro must be on the same line +. $ ls -l plp* -rw-rw-rw- 1 merijn users 0 Oct 28 10:57 plp.man -rw-rw-rw- 1 merijn users 44990 Oct 28 10:54 plp.tex $

      well from what I can spot with my smartphone pod2latex is complaining about inlined html. IIRC the man for pod::latex is pretty explicitely saying that it cant handle html.

      OTOH I did a testrun yesterday combining pod2latex -full and pdflatex and it produced pdf.

      but if you really need to cover inlined html you will always need a html2pdf solution.

      Cheers Rolf

        Yes, I have a large trailing section with

        =begin html lots of html =end html

        Enjoy, Have FUN! H.Merijn
