The results of pod2html are nice - the program itself is a bit rusty - but that's not my point. I agree that a ToC should be in every doc, but what use is it when running commandline perldoc - you can't click on a chapter in the ToC and jump to it.

Man, writing documentation is harder than writing the code! I recently designed a website to move some of the example usages OUT of my POD to make the POD more accessible, it was getting very large.

I must point out my new discovery of CSS (blush). While designing that website, i was determined to not include the POD docs, because the point of the website was hold content not in the docs. However, when trying to link to other CPAN mirror's, i noticed that none of them were as up-to-date as i would like, and most of them did not turn URL's into links.

So, i ran pod2html on my module and the CSS stylesheets took care of the rest. The result.

Writing documentation is hard! ;)

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
