  • Pod::Simple::HTML (Score:3, Informative)

    As David pointed out, you gave a bad reply to him.

    In Combust [develooper.com] we use Pod::Simple to parse a POD document as provided by Template Toolkit and parse it into a Template Toolkit document [xrl.us]. Certainly no tmp files and it works very well. :-)

      In Rael's case, he's looking for something that ships with Perl as most of his audience are people who don't know how to (or don't want to know how to) install modules from CPAN. Pod::Simple::HTML is nice, but it's depressing that this has to be something in a CPAN module and that it's taken regular joes like me zillions of years to realize that duh if POD is part of the Perl parser, maybe decent modules to parse POD should be part of Perl?

      He could ship blosxom with Pod::Simple and Pod::Simple::HTML but then he has to worry about how to install modules. Right now blosxom is a single CGI program, which makes installation a breeze. Modules vastly complicate that picture. He tries to keep functionality down to things that can be implemented with modules in the core since 5.004, but periodically he gets surprised (as with POD).
