sdview - a terminal-based structured document viewer for POD and other formats
$ sdview my-document.pod
# Understands POD in .pm files
$ sdview lib/App/sdview.pm
# Search perldoc for page documentation
$ Understands Markdown files
This script runs the App::sdview program, which renders a structured document to a terminal output, via the less pager.
$ sdview [FILE]
If a file path is given, the filename is used to determine if it should be parsed as POD (*.pm, *.pl or *.pod), or Markdown (*.md). (But see also the -f option).
If the name is not a file, perldoc -l will be used to convert the name of a Perl module into a location for its documentation.
Overrides detection of the file's format by inspecting the filename. Useful for viewing POD out of toplevel scripts whose filename does not indicate a language:
$ sdview -f POD bin/sdview
Specifies that a different form of output will be generated, instead of rendering formatted output directly to the terminal. Useful for cross- converting between file types:
$ sdview lib/App/sdview.pm -t Markdown > sdview.md
