Have a look at PPI::Document, too:

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; # Straight from the documention use PPI; # Load a document from a file my $Document = PPI::Document->new('My/Module.pm'); # Strip out comments $Document->prune('PPI::Token::Comment'); # Strip out Pod $Document->prune('PPI::Token::Pod'); # Save the file $Document->save('My/Module.pm.stripped');

Hth, Thomas

Udate: Added code to strip Pod

    Following your tip, I installed PPI::Document via PPM to see if it would improve on the stripping relative to perltidy. However, this critical step did not work:

    $Document = PPI::Document->new('Module.pm');

    I guess there is some PPI::Document package I need to get. I'll continue this later.

    Thanks.
