NAME
Pod::Simple::Methody -- turn Pod::Simple events into method calls SYNOPSIS
require 5; use strict; package SomePodFormatter; use base qw(Pod::Simple::Methody); sub handle_text { my($self, $text) = @_; ... } sub start_head1 { my($self, $attrs) = @_; ... } sub end_head1 { my($self) = @_; ... } ...and start_/end_ methods for whatever other events you want to catch. DESCRIPTION
This class is of interest to people writing Pod formatters based on Pod::Simple. This class (which is very small -- read the source) overrides Pod::Simple's _handle_element_start, _handle_text, and _handle_element_end methods so that parser events are turned into method calls. (Otherwise, this is a subclass of Pod::Simple and inherits all its methods.) You can use this class as the base class for a Pod formatter/processor. METHOD CALLING
When Pod::Simple sees a "=head1 Hi there", for example, it basically does this: $parser->_handle_element_start( "head1", \%attributes ); $parser->_handle_text( "Hi there" ); $parser->_handle_element_end( "head1" ); But if you subclass Pod::Simple::Methody, it will instead do this when it sees a "=head1 Hi there": $parser->start_head1( \%attributes ) if $parser->can('start_head1'); $parser->handle_text( "Hi there" ) if $parser->can('handle_text'); $parser->end_head1() if $parser->can('end_head1'); If Pod::Simple sends an event where the element name has a dash, period, or colon, the corresponding method name will have a underscore in its place. For example, "foo.bar:baz" becomes start_foo_bar_baz and end_foo_bar_baz. See the source for Pod::Simple::Text for an example of using this class. SEE ALSO
