Where do you get your definition for POD from?
Perl and POD are two different languages which can be intermingled somehow.
POD is what the POD-parser matches, and the input doesn't have to be a perl-source anyway.
And the Perl-parser doesn't know much about POD-syntax, it basically ignores any blocks between lines starting with a new statement beginning with "=" and followed by at least one word and finished by '=cut'.
This ignored block doesn't need to be valid POD:
And the code surrounding POD doesn't need to be Perl.
