in thread POD as a general documentation system

Most documentation needs no images
Indeed. I used to think that images were necessary in documentation (after all, an image speaks for 1000 words), but I dropped this off my list of requirements when I noticed that the vast majority of my stuff does without them. So, it's not on my requirements list, and if I really need to include an image in POD, there's always =for formatter as you say.

Thanks for your comment!

    Robartes,

    As a sysman you probably do not need to include a lot of images in your documentation, but that doesn't necessarily mean POD is versatile enough to be an all-round documentation system, IMHO.

    Technical analysis of programs for one, benefits a lot from pictures and diagrams. (At least in my experience)

    Nevertheless, I can fully agree with you: POD offers a lot of possibilities.

    Cheers,
    MichaelD.
