Pod::Readme - Intelligently generate a README file from POD
In a module's POD:
=head1 NAME MyApp - my nifty app =for readme plugin version =head1 DESCRIPTION This is a nifty app. =begin :readme =for readme plugin requires =head1 INSTALLATION ... =end :readme =for readme stop =head1 METHODS ...
Then from the command-line:
pod2readme lib/MyModule.pm README
This module filters POD to generate a README file, by using POD commands to specify which parts are included or excluded from the README file.
See the Pod::Readme documentation for more details on the POD syntax that this module recognizes.
See pod2readme for command-line usage.
This distribution requires Perl v5.10.1.
This distribution requires the following modules:
Class::Method::Modifiers (version 2.00)
CPAN::Changes (version 0.30)
Moo (version 1.004005)
Path::Tiny (version 0.018)
This distribution recommends the following modules:
Regex in changes plugin fixed to work with Perl 5.21 deprecated syntax [khwilliamson].
See the Changes file for a longer revision history.
This module is intended to be used by module authors for their own modules. It is not recommended for generating README files from arbitrary Perl modules from untrusted sources.
The original version was by Robert Rothenberg <email@example.com> until 2010, when maintenance was taken over by David Precious <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
In 2014, Robert Rothenberg rewrote the module to use filtering instead of subclassing a POD parser.
Thanks to people who gave feedback and suggestions to posts about the rewrite of this module on http://blogs.perl.org.
