Sometimes I need other people to confirm my hunches. The other day someone did me the favor of confirming my extremely strong feeling that Pod::HTML is really ungodly code:
TorgoX: yes, but perldoc is just wrappers around real stuff. Whereas Pod::Html does real work, and it's all GHASTLY.
Lord Wellington's Beef Trapeze: I remember looking intently at pod2html. While I don't remember the details, I recall thinking that it shouldn't work.
Lord Wellington's Beef Trapeze: Something along the lines of lovecraft's "the thing that should not be"
TorgoX: Totally. The simple fact [is] that he just doesn't build a tree structure, or even a token list. It's like he doesn't want to do anything that he couldn't do in Perl 4
Later it occurs to me: Duh, Pod::HTML doesn't work, and that's the problem! It works most of the time, but sometimes is doesn't, and attempts at fixing it run into the Lovecraft Factor.
I know, I know, stop bitching and fix it. I'm working on it. But I've got this book to finish writing.
