I'll have to go with the rest of the posts here and suggest that inline POD is better.

Actually, since you're documenting your subs anyway (you are, aren't you? ;), what's the point of using # when the alternative (POD) is machine readable? Using CPAN modules nota bene, you don't have to make up your own doc-to-HTML-or-whatnot standard like in so many other languages.

The one disadvantage I can see would possible be performance, but I think it's kind of easy on the parser to skip POD markup as opposed to making sense of Perl code :)

These are my templates for documenting properties and methods:

=head2 ppp The what that is this and that. =cut sub ppp { my $self = shift; =head2 mmm() Do this, do that. Return 1 on success, else 0. =cut sub mmm { my $self = shift;

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! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
