* Update MANIFEST
* Rename load test so it runs first
* Additional smoke test
* Fix =head3 appearing in some perlfunc lookups

* Fall back to an English perlfunc if translation doesn't exist (RT#104695)
* FreeBSD has mandoc too, with UTF-8 support.
* -U now documented and implied with -F (RT#87837)
3.25 - Thu Feb 12 03:06:43 UTC 2015
* No changes - roll an official
release for inclusion in Perl 5.22
3.24_02 - Wed Jan 21 03:12:37 UTC 2015
* Dave Mitchell sent a patch to reduce stderr spam
during core perl builds. Resolves RT#101493
* Make perldoc honor the MANPAGER environment
variable as documented. Resolves RT#100933
* Decode command line arguments at UTF-8 data.

3.24_01 - Wed Sep 10 03:13:58 UTC 2014
* The 'ToTerm' backend generates terminal escape sequences that
the 'less' pager does not display by default. The "-R" option
controls this, so pass it in the LESS environment variable
to avoid disturbing other pager invocations. Patch by
Niko Tyni. Closes RT#98636
* Unify filehandle opens and encoding into two methods
'open_fh' and 'set_encoding'. Based on a pull request
by Koichi KUBO. Closes RT#98019 better than c3fd47f :)
* Applied PR by Olivier Mengué to 'use parent' instead
of 'use base'
3.24 - Tue Aug 19 03:38:07 UTC 2014
* Release 3.24
Make sure when we open a filehandle for reading
or writing, we set ':encoding(UTF-8)' on it
everywhere. Closes RT#98019.
3.23_01 - Sat Aug 16 16:47:45 UTC 2014
* Test release to test UTF8 filehandles.
* Happy CPAN Day!
3.23 - Sun Feb 23 18:54:43 UTC 2014
* Release 3.23
Yes, this is a packaging error. Mea culpa. In the future
test releases will be 3.23_01, etc.
See https://twitter.com/frioux/status/429245594180128769
for context.
3.22_02 - Wed Feb 5 05:08:34 UTC 2014
* Add a pager that doesn't redirect stdin RT#85173
Added a special pager environment variable for use
when perldoc is in the -m mode that doesn't
redirect STDIN. Set PERLDOC_SRC_PAGER to use.
As in:
PERLDOC_SRC_PAGER=/usr/bin/vim perldoc -m File::Temp
* Teach ToTerm.pm to get terminal width RT#85467
Get a terminal width and pass it to Pod::Text::Termcap
from one of these sources (in order):
1. An explicit width set from command line with -w
2. MANWIDTH environment variable
3. stty output
4. The default width of 76 (same as Pod::Text)
3.22_01 - Sat Feb 1 05:00:13 UTC 2014
* Match =item more carefully when scanning perlfunc.
Fixes RT #86795. Previously matches could be generated

Perl functions.

Patch by Ingo Schwarze
* Re-add '-U' flag to skip attempting to drop
privileges. RT #87837
* Do not install to INSTALLDIRS after Perl 5.11 RT #89756

'qq' 'tr' and others) RT #86506. Previously most of
the text generated was incorrect.

* Make default formatter "ToTerm" instead of "ToMan" for
better UTF-8 support

3.14_08 - 2008-11-01
* no code changes from 3.14_07

- perldoc -v PerlVar
- old -v (Verbosely describe) is now -D

of documentation (if you have them)
3.14_07 - 2008-05-08

* so does Pod::Perldoc::BaseTo and Pod::Perldoc::GetOptsOO
3.14_06 - 2008-05-02

(suggested by Gisle Aas)

3.14_05 - 2008-04-22
* Search perlvar
* Applied patch to allow -A for searching perlvar.
(after a patch by Ovid, 2008-02-26)
[rt.cpan.org #33624]
* [RFC] the switch name is experimental: I am open
to convincing alternatives (other than -v and -V
which are already taken).
3.14_04 - 2008-04-16
* 'lib' & co. are added to search path if -f Build.PL
in current directory (rt.cpan.org #33941)

3.14 - 2004-11-30 Sean M. Burke sburke@cpan.org
* bugfix for Cygwin
* Matt Johnson sends in two patches to accomodate Cygwin.
Accepted.
* Also changing pathsep for IS_MSWin32 || IS_Dos temp files
from '/' to '\'.
3.13 - 2004-04-09 Sean M. Burke sburke@cpan.org
* minor bugfixes
Ken Willians notes that Pod::Perldoc::ToMan breaks when the
pod2man program isn't in $Config{'scriptdirexp'}. So I make it
look there first, but then fall back to not specifying where it
should be found.
James Michael Du Pont notes that Carp::croak isn't always loaded
by all versions of the modules perldoc uses. So I add an explicit
"require Carp::croak".
I add t/01_about_verbose.t just to give more diagnostics.
3.12 - 2003-10-21 Sean M. Burke sburke@cpan.org
* tweak for Linux man.
Slaven Rezic notes that Makefile.PL should say INSTALLDIRS => "perl"
for perl versions 5.8.1 and newer, to make installation work right
on those perls. Change made.
Slaven Rezic notes that -q was generating an erroneous =over 8 ...
around the sliced text from perlfaq searched via -q. Change made
-- this =over 8 ... =back stuff is now generated only if you're
calling perldoc with -f (for perlfunc sections).
3.11 - 2003-10-12 Sean M. Burke sburke@cpan.org
* tweak for Linux man.
Brendan O'Dea provides code for Pod/Perldoc/ToMan.pm to sets -rLL
to what stty reports for terminal column width.
3.10 - 2003-09-10 Sean M. Burke sburke@cpan.org
* bugfix for cygwin
Jari Aalto notes a problem with cygwin and the containspod routine
-- cygwin apparently pretends there's an executable $filename file
when there's really a "$filename.exe" file. Added a
cygwin-specific hack in containspod to trap this case.
3.09 - 2003-07-24 Sean M. Burke sburke@cpan.org
* perldoc when run as root no longer dies when it can't manage to
drop privileges. This is by popular demand.
* perldoc -f -X now properly sees an -X entry regardless of
whether it's coded as =item -X or =item I<-X>.
* In README, changed "This is an experimental distribution of
Perldoc," to "This is the distribution of Perldoc,"
Wee little things:
* Added a "use 5.006;" to the start of Perldoc.pm and the
Makefile.PL, since we do actually need that version of perl
for the module to even compile right. (Altho backporting is an
option later, if we remove the 5.6-isms.)
* Perldoc.pm has a new constant IS_Cygwin if we ever need it.
* Added a bit of IS_VMS logic.
* Minor cosmetic changes to handling of -U.
* Added a few comments here and there.
3.08 - 2003-01-18 Sean M. Burke sburke@cpan.org
* Fixed split-related bug in reading $Config{'pager'}.
Thanks to Chip Turner <cturner@redhat.com> for pointing it out!
3.07 - 2002-12-01 Sean M. Burke sburke@cpan.org
* Minor typo fix to code in Pod::Perldoc::ToMan.
* Added RTFREADER example to Pod::Perldoc::ToRTF docs.
* Made Pod::Perldoc::ToTk a bit more tolerant of old Tk::Pod
versions (pre-4.0).
3.06 - 2002-11-22 Sean M. Burke sburke@cpan.org
* Made it install to perldoc pand perldoc.pod now.
* Added -V
* Made -U a no-op switch, for legacy.
* Corrected a few minor typoes in the usage messages.
* Updated perldoc.pod to document the switches that were
previously documented only in perldoc -h
* Many thanks to David Hand, Avi Finkel, Iain "Spoon" Truskett,
Conrad Heiney, Casey West, Pete Sergeant, David Dyck, Michael
Schwern, Slaven Rezic, Hugo van der Sanden, and many others for
lots of patient help in working on this.
3.05a - 2002-11-11 Sean M. Burke sburke@cpan.org

3.01 - Sun Nov 10 21:38:09 MST 2002
Sean M. Burke <sburke@cpan.org>
Massive refactoring and code-tidying.
Now it's a module(-family)!
Formatter-specific stuff pulled out into Pod::Perldoc::To(Whatever).pm
Added -T, -d, -o, -M, -w.
Added some improved MSWin funk.
2.05 - Sat Oct 12 16:09:00 CEST 2002
Hugo van der Sanden <hv@crypt.org>
Made -U the default, based on patch from Simon Cozens
2.04 - Sun Aug 18 13:27:12 BST 2002
Randy W. Sims <RandyS@ThePierianSpring.org>
allow -n to enable nroff under Win32

Hugo van der Sanden <hv@crypt.org>
don't die when 'use blib' fails

Tom Christiansen <tchrist@perl.com>
Added -U insecurity option
2.01 - Sat Mar 11 15:22:33 MST 2000
Tom Christiansen <tchrist@perl.com>, querulously.
Security and correctness patches.
What a twisted bit of distasteful spaghetti code.
2.0 - ????
1.15 - Tue Aug 24 01:50:20 EST 1999
Charles Wilson <cwilson@ece.gatech.edu>
changed /pod/ directory to /pods/ for cygwin

-added Charles Bailey's further VMS patches, and -u switch
-added -t switch, with pod2text support
1.10 - Thu Nov 9 07:23:47 EST 1995
Kenneth Albanowski <kjahds@kjahds.com>
-added VMS support
-added better error recognition (on no found pages, just exit. On
missing nroff/pod2man, just display raw pod.)
-added recursive/case-insensitive matching (thanks, Andreas). This
slows things down a bit, unfortunately. Give a precise name, and
it'll run faster.
1.01 - Tue May 30 14:47:34 EDT 1995
Andy Dougherty <doughera@lafcol.lafayette.edu>
-added pod documentation.
-added PATH searching.
-added searching pod/ subdirectory (mainly to pick up perlfunc.pod
and friends.
