in reply to Perl Documentation, again. :(

I know that this doesn't answer your question, but maybe you could give a look at 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 :)
