  • POD always (still) sticks in the craw.

    I understand I have to learn a programming language to speak to a computer, but not that I need to learn a mark up language to speak to a human.

    I have a POD-learning block. I always cut and paste, or I have to go round finding out how to do it.

      Well, it's not exactly to speak but to write, which is a related but different thing. And writing itself can have many different "incarnations" depending on one's actual aim. In this case, for example it's to document (Perl code) which is a slightly specialized form of writing as opposed to generic one.
