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:

    > perl print "x"; =bala bala blaa asas =cut print "x"
    And the code surrounding POD doesn't need to be Perl.

    Cheers Rolf

    Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
    and:  <code> code here </code>
    to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
