NAME

Module::Install::PodFromEuclid - Module::Install extension to make POD from Getopt::Euclid-based scripts

SYNOPSIS

  # In Makefile.PL:
  use inc::Module::Install;
  author 'John Doe';
  license 'perl';
  pod_from 'scripts/my_script.pl';

DESCRIPTION

Module::Install::PodFromEuclid is a Module::Install extension that generates a POD file automatically from an indicated script containing Getopt::Euclid command-line specifications.

The POD file is generated using the --podfile option of Getopt::Euclid, but only whenever authors run Makefile.PL. While this extension will be bundled in your distribution, the pod_from command does nothing on the user-side.

Note: Authors should make sure that Module::Install::PodFromEuclid is installed before running Makefile.PL.

This module was inspired and borrows a lot from Module::Install::ReadmeFromPod.

COMMANDS

This plugin adds the following Module::Install command:

pod_from

Does nothing on the user-side. On the author-side it will generate a POD file that has the same base name as the Perl file, using Getopt::Euclid's --podfile feature:

  pod_from 'scripts/my_script.pl';  # generate scripts/my_script.pod

If you use the all_from command, pod_from will default to this value.

  all_from 'scripts/my_script.pl';
  pod_from;                         # create scripts/my_script.pod
