Pod::Perldoc::ToToc in a Google Code project

[ #30940 ]

I've been working on the Pod chapter for Mastering Perl, and wrote Pod-Perldoc-ToToc to demonstrate how to use perldoc with your own formatter as well as how to subclass Pod::Simple. This example simply extracts a table of contents, something I do quite often while working on our book sources.

Since I had this new module, I decided to try it with my Google Code project which I created after their OSCON announcement.

So far, I'm not that impressed with Google Code. It's a publically available subversion repository, but that's about all I like. It's still a young project, but I don't see any reason to switch over anything from Sourceforge yet.

  • Sure, I wouldn't recommend Google's Project Hosting for larger projects with much activity yet. But it's a great opportunity for authors of smaller modules to provide an easy accessible public SVN repository.

    NOW you definitely got my interest.

    I've been needing one of these for ages.

    I'd love to be able to get rid of my own svn and move to one that someone else hosts and manages and deals with downtime for.

    • Moreover, it's got http and https access, and you can give a commit bit to anyone with a gmail address. I think it's ideal for open repositories more modules.

    Well, first of all I thank you for bringing this up, since I didn't know about this Google service. Said this, we can at least hope in future improvements, due to their "continuous beta" development model. I'm confident new features will be constantly added (with the hope that they will be the Right™ ones).
