App::PodLinkCheck -- check Perl pod L<> link references


 use App::PodLinkCheck;
 exit App::PodLinkCheck->command_line;


$plc = App::PodLinkCheck->new (key => value, ...)

Create and return a PodLinkCheck object. The optional key/value parameters are

verbose => $integer (default 0)

Print some diagnostics about checking. Currently verbose=>1 shows all the links checked, or verbose=>2 shows that and also available targets detected in destination files etc.

$exitcode = $plc->command_line

Run a PodLinkCheck as from the command line. Arguments are taken from @ARGV and the return is an exit status code suitable for exit, so 0 for success.

$plc->check_file ($filename)

Run checks on a single file $filename and print reports to stdout.

$plc->check_tree ($file_or_dir, ...)

Run checks on all the files or directories given and print reports to stdout. Directories are traversed recursively, checking all Perl files. A Perl file is .pm, .pl or .pod. Emacs etc lockfiles (dangling symlinks) are ignored.
