pod2latex - convert pod documentation to latex format
pod2latex -out mytex.tex *.pod
pod2latex -full -sections 'DESCRIPTION|NAME' SomeDir
"pod2latex" is a program to convert POD format documentation (perlpod) into latex. It can
process multiple input documents at a time and either generate a latex file per input doc-
ument or a single combined output file.
OPTIONS AND ARGUMENTS
This section describes the supported command line options. Minium matching is supported.
Name of the output file to be used. If there are multiple input pods it is assumed
that the intention is to write all translated output into a single file. ".tex" is
appended if not present. If the argument is not supplied, a single document will be
created for each input file.
Creates a complete "latex" file that can be processed immediately (unless
"=for/=begin" directives are used that rely on extra packages). Table of contents and
index generation commands are included in the wrapper "latex" code.
Specify pod sections to include (or remove if negated) in the translation. See "SEC-
TION SPECIFICATIONS" in Pod::Select for the format to use for section-spec. This
option may be given multiple times on the command line.This is identical to the simi-
lar option in the "podselect()" command.
This option causes the output "latex" to be slightly modified from the input pod such
that when a "=head1 NAME" is encountered a section is created containing the actual
pod name (rather than NAME) and all subsequent "=head1" directives are treated as sub-
sections. This has the advantage that the description of a module will be in its own
section which is helpful for including module descriptions in documentation. Also
forces "latex" label and index entries to be prefixed by the name of the module.
Specifies the "latex" section that is equivalent to a "H1" pod directive. This is an
integer between 0 and 5 with 0 equivalent to a "latex" chapter, 1 equivalent to a
"latex" section etc. The default is 1 ("H1" equivalent to a latex section).
Print a brief help message and exit.
Print the manual page and exit.
Print information messages as each document is processed.
Known bugs are:
o Cross references between documents are not resolved when multiple pod documents are
converted into a single output "latex" file.
o Functions and variables are not automatically recognized and they will therefore not
be marked up in any special way unless instructed by an explicit pod command.
