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

Given your example and some of what you wrote (including criticism of "=cut"), I got the impression that the Perl-5-style "obvious" way to write paragraphs and verbatim text blocks had been dropped. I think that it is one of the best features of (Perl 5) POD, that you can denote a paragraph by simply adding a blank line and denote sample code by simply indenting a paragraph (both so intuitive, compact, clear, and convenient that they were obvious to both the author and the reader).

Checking the linked Synopsis, I see that this isn't the case. The obvious method is still supported. The example in the (well, that is the) Synopsis looks much more like Perl 5 POD and looks better, IMO, than the example you gave above. Just for y'all's information (including other readers who might have gotten a similar impression but didn't want to bother to browse the Synopsis).

Thanks for the Synopsis and for the explanation here, Damian.

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;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
    ] &#93;
