NAME

pod2html - convert .pod files to .html files

SYNOPSIS

DESCRIPTION

Converts files from pod format (see perlpod) to HTML format.

ARGUMENTS

pod2html takes the following arguments:

help

Displays the usage message.

:

htmldir

Sets the directory to which all cross references in the resulting HTML file will be relative. Not passing this causes all links to be absolute since this is the value that tells Pod::Html the root of the documentation tree.

Do not use this and --htmlroot in the same call to pod2html; they are mutually exclusive.

:

htmlroot

Sets the base URL for the HTML files. When cross-references are made, the HTML root is prepended to the URL.

Do not use this if relative links are desired: use --htmldir instead.

Do not pass both this and --htmldir to pod2html; they are mutually exclusive.

:

infile

Specify the pod file to convert. Input is taken from STDIN if no infile is specified.

:

outfile

Specify the HTML file to create. Output goes to STDOUT if no outfile is specified.

:

podroot

Specify the base directory for finding library pods.

:

podpath

Specify which subdirectories of the podroot contain pod files whose HTML converted forms can be linked-to in cross-references.

:

cachedir

Specify which directory is used for storing cache. Default directory is the current working directory.

:

flush

Flush the cache.

:

backlink

Turn =head1 directives into links pointing to the top of the HTML file.

:

nobacklink

Do not turn =head1 directives into links pointing to the top of the HTML file (default behaviour).

:

header

Create header and footer blocks containing the text of the ``NAME'' section.

:

noheader

Do not create header and footer blocks containing the text of the ``NAME'' section (default behaviour).

:

poderrors

Include a ``POD ERRORS'' section in the outfile if there were any POD errors in the infile (default behaviour).

:

nopoderrors

Do not include a ``POD ERRORS'' section in the outfile if there were any POD errors in the infile.

:

Generate an index at the top of the HTML file (default behaviour).

:

:

recurse

Recurse into subdirectories specified in podpath (default behaviour).

:
