Name

Pod::EOD - Moves declarative POD blocks to the end of the POD

Synopsis

#| Example sub!
my sub example {}

DOC INIT {
    use Pod::EOD;
    move-declarations-to-end($=pod);
}

=head1 OTHER POD
...

# Now the "Example sub" POD appears after
# the "OTHER POD" POD!

Description

Many authors from a Perl 5 background (like myself) write POD in a "all POD at the end" style; this keeps it out of the way when you're looking at the code, but in the same file. However, POD blocks are inserted into $=pod in the order they occur in the code, and I would rather not give up the advantages of declarative POD blocks. So this module simply moves declative POD blocks to the end of the POD document, so that the developer can keep their POD at the end, and the user can read the high-level overview of the module before encountering the reference section provided by declarative blocks.

) returns Mu

Rearranges the POD blocks in $pod (you will almost always pass your module's $=pod to this sub) so that declarative POD blocks (like this one) are moved to the end of the document. Note that this happens in place, so your original array is modified!
