Some thoughts
  • search.cpan.org is not CPAN, it is the official search engine, but there are others, like Kobesearch, MetaCPAN
  • PAUSE does not create html, see for yourself http://github.com/andk/pause
  • don't put an images directory in your package, use File::ShareDir and File::ShareDir::Install instead
  • A POD parser can do anything :) so yes, this is trivial to implement, but only practical if it is based on standard tools like File::ShareDir, say
    =for image dist_file( 'File-ShareDir', 'images/foo.jpg' ) =for image module_file( 'File::ShareDir', 'images/foo.jpg' ) =for image class_file( 'File::ShareDir', 'images/foo.jpg' )

    It would also be trivial to assume a dist or module or class based on the current dist/file being processed (also assuming a standard naming convention, which isn't universally followed), but it doesn't have to :)

    And it would also be trivial to update Pod::Simple::HTML and maybe Pod::Html to handle =for image (?:dist|module|class)_file\( (?:'[^']+\'|\s+|,)+ \) for end users (me, you)

    Not sure how search.cpan.org works exactly, but if it doesn't install modules (and it appears it doesn't) or run Makefile.PL && make (maybe it doesn't), then CPAN::Meta::Spec ( http://module-build.sourceforge.net/META-spec-v1.4.html ) might need to be updated to determine the sharedir info

  • you can preview/test your pod with search.cpan.org online pod previewer http://search.cpan.org/pod2html
  • Try it with inlined img/pod file to cpan :) pod and images/Re^2: Inline images in POD, it worked in my test (with modern browser)
    =head1 NAME pod-img.pod - example embedding html data uri image in pod =head1 THE IMAGE =for html <p><img src="data:image/png;base64,iVBORw0KGgoAAAANSUhEUgAAA +BQAAAAVCAIAAADJt1n/AAAAAXNSR0IArs4c6QAAAARnQU1BAACxjwv8YQUAAAAgY0hSTQ +AAeiYAAICEAAD6AAAAgOgAAHUwAADqYAAAOpgAABdwnLpRPAAAAKdJREFUOE/Fk2sOgCA +Mg/HqxpuZeC1sqI5ReSh/JATB7Os6HkuMMUw3wNMttMhjP7Z16+vWYWDWO3yGUTgAG5mZ +vcVfMIMAIA4jd9D4AWwAJYj5Q6jyWrO3yjkL8TD+cKmwVC6w2SlgaH3qCpfGmlrpRl6xt +/v0ZXKbVL28hc1LTnVLV2z7zGLkucy7bdo+SDKLtMK+SKl8nFngD5nnz7n/bgcP4wf4BN +5NffCErP3uAAAAAElFTkSuQmCC"> =cut
