annopod -q FAQ Keyword
The annopod program works exactly the same as perldoc, except that it looks for a local annotation database and inserts the annotations just before rendering the POD.
It works by using a local note database that can be downloaded from
This is an SQLite3 database; the file should be saved in one of these locations:
$HOME $USERPROFILE $ALLUSERSPROFILE /var/annocpan
It can also be called .annopod.db, to hide it in Unix-like systems. It is your resposibility to keep this file as up-to-date as you want. Future versions may include an automatic update feature (which will require network connectivity).
