( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

If you are hell-bent on doing that, and having doc-strings for your functions, the following style may be to your taste:

use vars %documentation; sub doc($$) { my ($for,$doc) = @_; $documentation{ $for } = $doc; }; doc('mysub1',<<'=cut'); =head2 C<< mysub1 >> This documents mysub1. An example: mysub1(); =cut sub mysub1 { ... }; doc('frobnicate',<<'=cut'); =head2 C<< frobnicate >> This documents frobnicate. An example: frobnicate(); =cut sub frobnicate { ... };

You will note from history that this style never caught on.

If you adhere to a strict documentation style, you may simply parse the POD and extract the function definitions from that. Using "docstrings" and parsing the module documentation are equivalent in that sense.
