in reply to ORG to POD translator

Cool!

OT: Just as only perl can parse Perl, only org-mode can parse Org -- and Org is always changing. For simple documents, a simple script like this is great; for true Org translation, the way to go would be to export HTML or DocBook and work from there. IMHO, Org::Parser is doing it wrong: it's no longer simple, yet it will never truly parse Org.

    you're so right! I was pondering to migrate the regexes from org.el and org-exp.el when I noticed that emphasizes are allowed to spread 2 lines (actually the number of lines is customizable in "Org Emphasis Regexp Components")

    /abc def/

    This wasn't clear for me since the fontlock in emacs doesn't always get it right.

    But it's exported to

    <i>abc def</i>

    So a clean parser would at least need to read the customizations from emacs!

    Cheers Rolf
