Apache::Pod 0.02 is out

[ #8088 ]
Sean Burke has put out Pod::Simple 0.93, and I've followed that up with the first usable version of Apache::Pod 0.02. It's meant to replace Rich Bowen's Apache::Perldoc. The cool thing about it is that it doesn't use the pod2html command-line tool to do its dirty work, which means you can run it w/o writing to a temp directory or anything yucky like that.

Installation is super easy. Just do:

<Files *.pod>
        SetHandler  perl-script
        PerlHandler Apache::Pod::HTML
<Location /perldoc>
        SetHandler  perl-script
        PerlHandler Apache::Pod::HTML

and now all *.pod files are rendered as HTML, and http://your.server/perldoc/Module::Name will do docs for Module::Name. And, if you prefer text, change the ::HTML to ::Text. Other subclasses are welcome, too.

  • Two problems: Pod::Simple was not installed automatically as a prereq by CPAN (this was immediately obvious), and Pod::Find in my installation (perl 5.6.0) was too old (this I had to read the httpd error logs to find out, and I took a guess that the fact that Pod::Find::pod_where couldn't be found was a matter of an old version).

    Tt's quite a cool module, thanks.
