Pod::Text::Overstrike - Convert POD data to formatted over- strike text
use Pod::Text::Overstrike; my $parser = Pod::Text::Overstrike->new (sentence => 0, width => 78); # Read POD from STDIN and write to STDOUT. $parser->parse_from_filehandle; # Read POD from file.pod and write to file.txt. $parser->parse_from_file ('file.pod', 'file.txt');
Pod::Text::Overstrike is a simple subclass of Pod::Text that highlights output text using overstrike sequences, in a manner similar to nroff. Characters in bold text are over- struck (character, backspace, character) and characters in underlined text are converted to overstruck underscores (underscore, backspace, character). This format was origi- nally designed for hardcopy terminals and/or lineprinters, yet is readable on softcopy (CRT) terminals. Overstruck text is best viewed by page-at-a-time programs that take advantage of the terminal's stand-out and under- line capabilities, such as the less program on Unix. Apart from the overstrike, it in all ways functions like Pod::Text. See Pod::Text for details and available options.
Currently, the outermost formatting instruction wins, so for example underlined text inside a region of bold text is displayed as simply bold. There may be some better approach possible.
