in thread pod-error in perldocs


Whatever is splitting the entries

IMHO parsing is done in POD::Simple, but I can't remember this bug in any older perl-versions...

Anyway I've send an email to perl5porters reporting it and pointing back to this thread.

If someone can spot the problem or can even supply a patch in thsi thread it should be seen!

Anyhow I have work to do with POD::Simple next week so I'm gonna have a look...

Cheers Rolf

    I can confirm that this error exists in 5.10.0 and that it does not exist in 5.8.4 or 5.8.8. Also, in 5.10 at least, parsing for this option occurs entirely in Pod::Perldoc, not Pod::Simple.
