NAME

Gimp::Pod - Evaluate pod documentation embedded in scripts.

SYNOPSIS

  use Gimp::Pod;
  my $pod = Gimp::Pod->new;
  my $synopsis = $pod->section('SYNOPSIS');
  my @temp_procs = $pod->sections('TEMPORARY PROCEDURES');
  my $text = $pod->section('TEMPORARY PROCEDURES', 'p1 - x', 'PARAMETERS');

  my @args = fixup_args(@register_args);

DESCRIPTION

Gimp::Pod can be used to find and parse embedded pod documentation in Gimp-Perl scripts, returning formatted text.

FUNCTIONS

fixup_args

fixup_args is exported by default. It takes a list of arguments, and for all the scalar arguments, will (if they are false) extract them from various parts of the calling script's POD documentation, and then return the fixed-up list:

$function

Defaults to the NAME section of the POD, the part before the first -. Falls back to the script's filename.

$blurb

Defaults to the NAME section of the POD, the part after the first -.

$help

Defaults to the DESCRIPTION section of the POD.

$author

Defaults to the AUTHOR section of the POD.

Defaults to the LICENSE section of the POD.

$date

Defaults to the DATE section of the POD.

Defaults to the SYNOPSIS section of the POD.

$imagetypes

Defaults to the "IMAGE TYPES" section of the POD.

$params

Defaults to the "PARAMETERS" section of the POD, passed to eval, e.g.:

  =head PARAMETERS

    [ PF_COLOR, 'color', 'Colour', 'black' ],
    [ PF_FONT, 'font', 'Font', 'Arial' ],

You don't have to indent it so that POD treats it as verbatim, but it will be more readable in any POD viewer if you do. If you pass in a true non-ref value, it will be evaluated as though it had been read from the POD.

$results

Defaults to the "RETURN VALUES" section of the POD, passed to eval. Not providing the relevant POD section is perfectly valid, so long as you intend to return no values. As above, if passed a true non-ref value, it will be evaluated.

$other

Untouched. Must be supplied - will normally be the code reference.

make_arg_line

make_arg_line is exported by default. It is used by source filters in Gimp::Fu and Gimp::Extension to generate the line inserted at the start of functions passed to podregister. It takes as arguments, the output of fixup_args, and returns the text to be inserted (possibly an empty string).

METHODS

new

Return a new Gimp::Pod object representing the current script or undef, if an error occured.

section(@headers)

Return the section with the header described by @headers, the first being a head1, the second <head2>, etc, or undef if not found. There is no trailing newline on the returned string.

sections(@headers)

Returns a list of section titles found in the pod, described similarly to above.
