I wanted a one click solution to viewing the POD of perl scripts or
modules with Nautilus The solution: make sure Pod::Html is installed,
and copy the following script to ~/.gnome2/nautilus-scripts/podview:
for i in $@; do
pod2html --infile=$i --outfile=$t \
mozilla-firefox -remote "openURL(file://$t,new-window)"
( sleep 2 && rm $t ) &
You may have to open up the nautilus-scripts directory and refresh.
Afterward, right-clicking on a document shows a "Scripts" submenu, which
contains a "podview" item. And, my stylesheet is pretty.
