NAME

POD2::FR - French translation of Perl core documentation

SYNOPSIS

  %> perldoc POD2::FR::<podname>

  use POD2::FR;
  print_pods();
  print_pod('pod_foo', 'pod_baz', ...);

  %> perl -MPOD2::FR -e print_pods
  %> perl -MPOD2::FR -e print_pod <podname1> <podname2> ...

DESCRIPTION

pod2fr is the french translation project of core Perl pods. This has been (and currently still is) a very big work! :-)

See http://perl.enstimac.fr for more details about the project.

Once the package has been installed, the translated documentation can be accessed with:

  %> perldoc POD2::FR::<podname>

EXTENDING perldoc

With the translated pods, unfortunately, the useful perldoc's -f and -q switches don't work no longer.

So, pod2it (italian translation project) made a simple patch to Pod/Perldoc.pm 3.14 in order to allow also the syntax:

  %> perldoc -L FR <podname>
  %> perldoc -L FR -f <function>
  %> perldoc -L FR -q <FAQregex>

The patch adds the -L switch that allows to define language code for desired language translation. If POD2::<code> package doesn't exists, the effect of the switch will be ignored.

If you are particularly lazy you can add a system alias like:

  perldoc-fr="perldoc -L FR "

in order to avoid to write the -L switch every time and to type directly:

  %> perldoc-fr -f map

You can apply the patch with:

  %> patch -p0 `perl -MPod::Perldoc -e 'print $INC{"Pod/Perldoc.pm"}'` < /path/to/Perldoc.pm-3.14-patch

The patch lives under ./patches/Perldoc.pm-3.14-patch shipped in the distribution of POD::IT package.

Note that the patch is for version 3.14 of Pod::Perldoc (included into Perl 5.8.7). If you have a previous Perl distro (but >= 5.8.1) and you are impatient to apply the patch, please upgrade your Pod::Perldoc module to 3.14! ;-)

See search_perlfunc_re API for more information.

API

The package exports following functions:

  • print_pods

    Prints all translated pods and relative Perl original version.

  • print_pod

    Prints relative Perl original version of all pods passed as arguments.

  • search_perlfunc_re

    Since Pod/Perldoc.pm's search_perlfunc method uses hard coded string "Alphabetical Listing of Perl Functions" (as regexp) to skip introduction, in order to make the patch to work with other languages with the option -L, we used a simple plugin-like mechanism.

    POD2::<code> language package must export search_perlfunc_re that returns a localized translation of the paragraph string above. This string will be used to skip perlfunc.pod intro. Again, if POD2::<code>->search_perlfunc_re fails (or doesn't exist), we'll come back to the default behavoiur. This mechanism allows to add additional POD2::* translations without need to patch Pod/Perldoc.pm every time.

Comment fonctionne le projet de traduction

pod2fr est un projet qui est né en 1998/1999 par la volonté d'un groupe de contributeurs du forum de discussions Perl francophone (fr.comp.lang.perl). Il a été animé par Marc Carmier. Le site web http://perl.enstimac.fr donne l'accès à tous les documents traduits.

À ce jour, il n'y a malheureusement plus vraiment de groupe de traduction. Il est possible que le groupe de traducteurs/relecteurs se réorganise et, lorsque cela arrivera, vous trouverez de plus amples informations sur le forum ou le site cité ci-dessus.

En attendant que le projet redémarre et en se calquant sur le module POD2::IT (merci à eux pour le travail d'intégration), nous avons créé ce module POD2::FR afin que tout le monde puisse profiter du travail déjà effectué. De temps à autre, de nouvelles traductions s'ajoutent au gré des envies de chacun. Pour toute remarque ou contribution, vous pouvez toujours me contacter : <paul.gaborit+perl AT enstimac DOT fr>.
