Re: Please for the love of god, can I get a documentation format that doesn't suck?

in reply to Please for the love of god, can I get a documentation format that doesn't suck?

I'm trying to get around this by switching my documentation to robodoc. The main advantage is to be somewhat more compatible with ctags; it also is compatible with many languages, and not only perl; and the default formatters (robodoc to html, etc) give better looking results than corresponding POD translations.

What I still miss is a practical robodoc-to-POD (and reverse) translator, though :)

update: I've finally made it ! It's fa for perfect but it works fine with all my code. See ROBODoc to Pod translator

[erix]: my objection to sigs is just that they take screen space. ( Some monks would have *several* slogans underneath a 1-liner reply )
[Discipulus]: a solution would be disabiltate sig as default and let users to show them
[karlgoethebier]: now it's getting weird...
[GotToBTru]: 'getting'?
[Discipulus]: why karlgoethebier ?
