RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for pod::text::termcap (redhat section 3pm)

Pod::Text::Termcap(3pm) 	 Perl Programmers Reference Guide	  Pod::Text::Termcap(3pm)

NAME
       Pod::Text::Termcap - Convert POD data to ASCII text with format escapes

SYNOPSIS
	   use Pod::Text::Termcap;
	   my $parser = Pod::Text::Termcap->new (sentence => 0, width => 78);

	   # Read POD from STDIN and write to STDOUT.
	   $parser->parse_from_filehandle;

	   # Read POD from file.pod and write to file.txt.
	   $parser->parse_from_file ('file.pod', 'file.txt');

DESCRIPTION
       Pod::Text::Termcap is a simple subclass of Pod::Text that highlights output text using the
       correct termcap escape sequences for the current terminal.  Apart from the format codes,
       it in all ways functions like Pod::Text.  See Pod::Text for details and available options.

NOTES
       This module uses Term::Cap to retrieve the formatting escape sequences for the current
       terminal, and falls back on the ECMA-48 (the same in this regard as ANSI X3.64 and ISO
       6429, the escape codes also used by DEC VT100 terminals) if the bold, underline, and reset
       codes aren't set in the termcap information.

       The current version of this module is always available from its web site at
       <http://www.eyrie.org/~eagle/software/podlators/>.  It is also part of the Perl core dis-
       tribution as of 5.6.0.
