Some POD questions.

davidov0009 has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I have looked through perlpod and some other tutorials on documentation for perl but to me there always seems to be a missing step. The part where you make the documentation into an actual readable document. I have looked at pod2html but don't quite understand its purpose. How does one go about taking the POD in their module/script and making it into those pages that one sees for each module on CPAN?

use strict; use CGI;

    pod2html < /path/to/ > module.html

    Try POD::HTML. It's just a frontend to the command line tool, but it will do what you need. Oh, and I suggest you do some form of caching or your Web host / admin may come smack you after a few thousand hits. The tool itself handles some caching, so read those docs.

    As someone already stated with less typing (you don't need to '<' in the script):
    $ pod2html > file.html
