MirOS Manual: Pod::Html(3p)


Pod::Html(3p)   Perl Programmers Reference Guide    Pod::Html(3p)

NAME

     Pod::Html - module to convert pod files to HTML

SYNOPSIS

         use Pod::Html;
         pod2html([options]);

DESCRIPTION

     Converts files from pod format (see perlpod) to HTML format.
     It can automatically generate indexes and cross-references,
     and it keeps a cache of things it knows how to
     cross-reference.

ARGUMENTS

     Pod::Html takes the following arguments:

     backlink
             --backlink="Back to Top"

         Adds "Back to Top" links in front of every "head1" head-
         ing (except for the first).  By default, no backlinks
         are generated.

     cachedir
             --cachedir=name

         Creates the item and directory caches in the given
         directory.

     css
             --css=stylesheet

         Specify the URL of a cascading style sheet.  Also dis-
         ables all HTML/CSS "style" attributes that are output by
         default (to avoid conflicts).

     flush
             --flush

         Flushes the item and directory caches.

     header
             --header
             --noheader

         Creates header and footer blocks containing the text of
         the "NAME" section.  By default, no headers are gen-
         erated.

     help
             --help

         Displays the usage message.

     hiddendirs
             --hiddendirs
             --nohiddendirs

         Include hidden directories in the search for POD's in
         podpath if recurse is set. The default is not to
         traverse any directory whose name begins with ".". See
         "podpath" and "recurse".

         [This option is for backward compatibility only. It's
         hard to imagine that one would usefully create a module
         with a name component beginning with ".".]

     htmldir
             --htmldir=name

         Sets the directory in which the resulting HTML file is
         placed.  This is used to generate relative links to
         other files. Not passing this causes all links to be
         absolute, since this is the value that tells Pod::Html
         the root of the documentation tree.

     htmlroot
             --htmlroot=name

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

     index
             --index
             --noindex

         Generate an index at the top of the HTML file.  This is
         the default behaviour.

     infile
             --infile=name

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

     libpods
             --libpods=name:...:name

         List of page names (eg, "perlfunc") which contain link-
         able "=item"s.

     netscape

             --netscape
             --nonetscape

         Deprecated, has no effect. For backwards compatibility
         only.

     outfile
             --outfile=name

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

     podpath
             --podpath=name:...:name

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

     podroot
             --podroot=name

         Specify the base directory for finding library pods.

     quiet
             --quiet
             --noquiet

         Don't display mostly harmless warning messages.  These
         messages will be displayed by default.  But this is not
         the same as "verbose" mode.

     recurse
             --recurse
             --norecurse

         Recurse into subdirectories specified in podpath
         (default behaviour).

     title
             --title=title

         Specify the title of the resulting HTML file.

     verbose
             --verbose
             --noverbose

         Display progress messages.  By default, they won't be
         displayed.
