pod2latex - convert pod documentation to latex format
pod2latex *.pm pod2latex -out mytex.tex *.pod pod2latex -full -sections 'DESCRIPTION|NAME' SomeDir pod2latex -prefile h.tex -postfile t.tex my.pod
"pod2latex" is a program to convert POD format documentation (perlpod) into latex. It can process multiple input docu- ments at a time and either generate a latex file per input document or a single combined output file.
This section describes the supported command line options. Minimum matching is supported. -out Name of the output file to be used. If there are multi- ple input pods it is assumed that the intention is to write all translated output into a single file. ".tex" is appended if not present. If the argument is not sup- plied, a single document will be created for each input file. -full Creates a complete "latex" file that can be processed immediately (unless "=for/=begin" directives are used that rely on extra packages). Table of contents and index generation commands are included in the wrapper "latex" code. -sections Specify pod sections to include (or remove if negated) in the translation. See "SECTION SPECIFICATIONS" in Pod::Select for the format to use for section-spec. This option may be given multiple times on the command line.This is identical to the similar option in the "podselect()" command. -modify This option causes the output "latex" to be slightly modified from the input pod such that when a "=head1 NAME" is encountered a section is created containing the actual pod name (rather than NAME) and all subsequent "=head1" directives are treated as subsections. This has the advantage that the description of a module will be perl v5.8.8 2006-06-30 1 POD2LATEX(1) Perl Programmers Reference Guide POD2LATEX(1) in its own section which is helpful for including module descriptions in documentation. Also forces "latex" label and index entries to be prefixed by the name of the module. -h1level Specifies the "latex" section that is equivalent to a "H1" pod directive. This is an integer between 0 and 5 with 0 equivalent to a "latex" chapter, 1 equivalent to a "latex" section etc. The default is 1 ("H1" equivalent to a latex section). -help Print a brief help message and exit. -man Print the manual page and exit. -verbose Print information messages as each document is pro- cessed. -preamble A user-supplied preamble for the LaTeX code. Multiple values are supported and appended in order separated by "\n". See -prefile for reading the preamble from a file. -postamble A user supplied postamble for the LaTeX code. Multiple values are supported and appended in order separated by "\n". See -postfile for reading the postamble from a file. -prefile A user-supplied preamble for the LaTeX code to be read from the named file. Multiple values are supported and appended in order. See -preamble. -postfile A user-supplied postamble for the LaTeX code to be read from the named file. Multiple values are supported and appended in order. See -postamble.
Known bugs are: + Cross references between documents are not resolved when multiple pod documents are converted into a single out- put "latex" file. + Functions and variables are not automatically recognized and they will therefore not be marked up in any special perl v5.8.8 2006-06-30 2 POD2LATEX(1) Perl Programmers Reference Guide POD2LATEX(1) way unless instructed by an explicit pod command.
