       pod2usage - print usage messages from embedded pod docs in files

       pod2usage   [-help] [-man] [-exit exitval] [-output outfile] [-verbose level] [-pathlist
		   dirlist] file

       -help   Print a brief help message and exit.

       -man    Print this command's manual page and exit.

       -exit exitval
	       The exit status value to return.

       -output outfile
	       The output file to print to. If the special names "-" or ">&1" or ">&STDOUT" are
	       used then standard output is used. If ">&2" or ">&STDERR" is used then standard
	       error is used.

       -verbose level
	       The desired level of verbosity to use:

		   1 : print SYNOPSIS only
		   2 : print SYNOPSIS sections and any OPTIONS/ARGUMENTS sections
		   3 : print the entire manpage (similar to running pod2text)

       -pathlist dirlist
	       Specifies one or more directories to search for the input file if it was not sup-
	       plied with an absolute path. Each directory path in the given list should be sepa-
	       rated by a ':' on Unix (';' on MSWin32 and DOS).

       file    The pathname of a file containing pod documentation to be output in usage mesage
	       format (defaults to standard input).

       pod2usage will read the given input file looking for pod documentation and will print the
       corresponding usage message.  If no input file is specifed than standard input is read.

       pod2usage invokes the pod2usage() function in the Pod::Usage module. Please see
       "pod2usage()" in Pod::Usage.
