    But this was one of the main goals of Pod::SAX - to use the standard SAX API for accepting basically anything you can pass to it - a filename, a filehandle or a scalar.

    Unfortunately people didn't like Pod::SAX because it a) made people think of XML, and b) wasn't very well documented. So along came Pod::Simple which mostly fixes those two bugs.

    Plus I think people didn't really understand the benefits of using something like SAX - the multitude of modules you could then use for generating different format content. Shame really.
