in reply to Perl Documentation, again. :(

I know that this doesn't answer your question, but maybe you could give a look at http://www.naturaldocs.org/. It has support for perl, and is somewhat similar in concept to doxygen. Put some extra comments in your code, run the tool against it and it generates your documentation. I successfully got it to work on one of my recent projects without much work. The documentation for it is pretty good.

    One thing I don't like about NaturalDocs is that if you want to use POD and ND, you need to write your documentation twice -- or at least I have not found a way to have both available with a single set of source. That is not to say that ND is not a very good system. I am quite happy with most of what it does.

    I would be more than happy to see this response proven wrong :)

      Yah, I agree with that. For the last project that I used ND on I decided to only use ND and not both it and POD. It would definately be cool to have a POD output format for ND. If you ever find anything out, let me know :)
