Firstly, thanks for the feedback.
Secondly: I'm (still) using 5.6.1 and did't know of the feature you mentioned. Using IO::Scalar might also be feasable.
Another comment: why not patch existing module to do what you want instead of creating yet another CPAN module?
Pod::Parser seems rather complex, so I thought patching it to return a scalar instead of writing to a FILEHANDLE would be hard. Passing an IO::Scalar-FH (or adding some methods to Pod::Parser that implement this) might be a good idea.
On the other hand, Pod::Parser seems like a little bit of overkill, if all I want to do is remove POD.
I'll give it a thought, and talk to Marek Rouchal about patching Pod::Parser.
Marek suggested using Pod::Simple, as "therein lies the future" (his words). So I'll take a look there...
