in reply to POD: getting usage snippets from perldoc

The simplest answer for a start is to use perldoc -u f NAME with the names given above...

D:\tmp\woman>perldoc -u -f split|more =over 8 =item split /PATTERN/,EXPR,LIMIT X<split> =item split /PATTERN/,EXPR =item split /PATTERN/ =item split ...

I'm sure there is a use perldoc-Module * exposing this functionality, but have to check if it can also be applied with pods other than perlfunc .

*) uhm ... Pod::Perldoc is not really excessively documented stuff ...
