1.69 (marekr) - CPAN#111313: Makefile creation issue with Pod-Usage-1.68 thanks to H M Brand for the suggestion on how to create a more portable tar.gz distribution file - CPAN#109830: Tests fail bundle some old Pod::Parser modules in the test so that there is no more dependency. This has to refactored one day to entirely get rid of that 1.68 (marekr) - CPAN#102529: License declaration mismatch unified the license for Pod-Usage to "as Perl itself", and corrected authors - CPAN#109830: Tests fail added prerequisite for Pod::Text 4.00 to avoid running tests with outdated Pod::Text - CPAN#110443: [PATCH] fix -perldoc option in pod2usage() method added missing '-' - CPAN#110446: [feature request] -perldocopt for supplying perldoc options added this option; split of string on whitespace is not optimal, but should do the job 1.67 (marekr) - added options -perlcmd and -perldoc to allow for non-standard installations of perl and the perldoc script. Thanks to Markus Jansen for the patch 1.66 (marekr) - CPAN#102116: pod2usage() -sections omits section with subsection specified added more precise documentation about the -section syntax and semantics - CPAN#102117: pod2usage() changes formatting added documentation to describe what formatting changes pod2usage applies - CPAN#102101: New tests fail when in core changed the way the tests find their dependencies. Thanks to BINGOS for the patch, applied in slightly modified way 1.65 (marekr) - CPAN#81059: [RT #115534]: Pod::Usage Failes to Select -sections with Negation fixed a specific corner case for section selection - CPAN#101538: Pod::Usage doesn't handle E<copy> correctly introduced a utf8 option; this may actually not solve the problem, but it is the best we can do for the moment - CPAN#101581: pod2usage() -sections omits marked-up text from =head lines make sure that marked-up text is not skipped 1.64 (marekr) - CPAN#93170: Abstract in pod doesn't follow convention fixed the NAME section - CPAN#86932: documentation does not work with use strict rewritten parts of the DESCRIPTION section - CPAN#86776: "pod2usage -verbose 2 FILE" is broken when perldoc is missing verified that pod2usage acts decently if perldoc is missing note: a Perl installation without perldoc is like a haunted house without ghosts 1.63 (marekr) - CPAN#85477: Module version not updated in last release ...fixed - CPAN#85478: typo fixes ...corrected 1.62 (marekr) Patches provided by rjbs - many thanks! - These commits update Pod::Usage to only use Pod::Simple, so that any reliance on Pod::Parser is removed, making it easier to remove Pod::Parser from core. - [PATCH 1/4] update Makefile: strict, INSTALLDIR, 5.6 - [PATCH 2/4] we will start to require perl 5.6 from here on out - [PATCH 3/4] always use Pod::Text as default base class - [PATCH 4/4] eliminate the branch in which Pod::Parser would be used This commit is intended entirely to free Pod::Usage from any reliance on Pod::Parser. * Usage.pm now defaults to using Pod::Text, rather than checking $] to pick. * $Pod::Select::MAX_HEADING_LEVEL is replaced with a local var * &Pod::Select::_compile_section_spec is copied into this module This isn't the most elegant fix, but it's a bit of a ball of mud. The code is written to let you alter @ISA at runtime to something that is derived either from Pod::Parser or Pod::Simple. This should probably be more explicitly limited to Pod::Simple in future releases. 1.61 (marekr) - fix empty META.yml (CPAN RT#83118: META.yml is empty) - update outdated test expected data (CPAN RT#83111: fails test) 1.60 (marekr) - moved POD behind __END__ for slighlty quicker loading - CPAN RT#81387: 2 suggestions for module Pod::Usage added example of how to use FindBin to locate the script; added $Pod::Usage::Formatter to allow a different base class - CPAN RT#75598: [PATCH] Don't use perldoc if it is missing implemented as suggested in the RT ticket - factored Pod::Usage out of the Pod-Parser distribution into a separate one, in order to prepare the rewrite based upon Pod::Simple - thanks to rjbs for driving this For prior changes, see the Pod::Parser change log.
