Pod::Stripper is based on Pod::Parser, which works mainly on input- and output-streams, i.e. files or filehandles. Which makes it really hard to capture the result in a string.
in reply to RFC: Pod::Remove
In Perl >= 5.8.0 it is not a problem:
# opens filehandle to "in memory" files held in Perl scalars
In Perl < 5.8.0 you can use IO::Scalar to do the same thing.
Another comment: why not patch existing module to do what you want instead of creating yet another CPAN module?
