Single point of documentation
<snip>... I'd write the POD into all the scripts and then copy the useful bits into a separate file. It's more work, but it'll be more useful to the next coder.
Having a single point of documentation is one of the most important reasons I want to use POD--that way a change to the commented source is immediately reflected in the Programmer's Manual.
But when you say to "copy the useful bits into a separate file" this doesn't solve the problem.
Is there a way, in POD, to accumulate POD comments in multiple files into one larger document? This way there would truly be a single point of documentation.
Microsoft delendum est.
