Stuff with the Perl Foundation. A couple of patches in the Perl core. A few CPAN modules. That about sums it up.

[ #39794 ]

I was working with Pod::PseudoPod to create rich, structured documents with the idea that I could create nicely formatted PDFs. So far, the only reasonable way (no, plain text and HTML are not "reasonable") to accomplish this seems to be to emit DocBook xml from the PseudoPod and then convert that to LaTeX or PDF format. However, trying to find a tool which does that on Mac OS X Snow Leopard has left me at a dead end (CPAN libraries which claim to help are falling down badly).

So, what do you use to address this situation? Software which can actually install on OS X would be a bonus. Software which doesn't require me to read through volumes of documentation to figure out that one little setting would also be a bonus. I don't mind a little work, but so far, most software I've found has been miserable (e.g., openjade segfaults and I've no idea why).
