I am well aware of Pod::Pdf, but that generates PDF with horrible fonts: Times and Courier are unacceptable for me. The module and has the font-metrics builtin in the module. I do not understand how Adobe could have picked these fonts as defaults.
The module has no option(s) to choose other fonts. My font of choice would be DejaVu Sans + DejaVu Sans Mono or Kuro, but any non-serif font would be a huge improvement.
What I currently do is convert pod to html with pod2html, open that in Opera and print as pdf. The result is exactly what I want, but it is hard to imagine that I cannot do this in/with perl.
Beauty is withing the eye of the reader and thus very subjective, but companies do have standards for how their docs look like and I am very happy that Times and Courier are not in our company standards.
Enjoy, Have FUN! H.Merijn
