in reply to POD in 5 minutes

Just a minor point but as a newbie (with pod) what is the purpose of using pod style formatting and not just # comments ? .. I know there is one, but in the context of the article it doesn't mention anywhere how to actually produce readable documentation from it. Thanks for any pointers.
