pod2pdf

Plain Old Documentation to Portable Document Format converter

POD allows for the documentation of Perl code. But with a few tricks, e.g., when disguised as comments, it is applicable to many other languages, too. It resembles HTML in the way that it allows for the structured representation of text. Hence, it looks rather good when converted for printers, HTML or man pages.

This package represents more than a mere alternative to pod2man|groff -man to achieve a coversion from POD to PostScript and from there via ps2pdf to PDF. Its major advantage lies in the inclusion of images for the documentation. This renders POD suitable for many smallish projects as a lingua franca for their documentation - associated with the source and separate documents - so texts (and graphics) can be shared more easily between documenters and programmers.

pod2pdf for Debian
==================

The README file mentions Paper::Specs which is not yet available for
Debian. It would be lovely if someone could address the respective
packaging work.

dh-make-perl suggests the package to be named libpod2pdf-perl, but
since the package will mostly be used as a binary, I have decided
against that convention.
