NAME

Pod::Plainer - Perl extension for converting Pod to old-style Pod.

SYNOPSIS

  use Pod::Plainer;

  my $parser = Pod::Plainer -> new ();
  $parser -> parse_from_filehandle(\*STDIN);

DESCRIPTION

Pod::Plainer uses Pod::Parser which takes Pod with the (new) 'C<< .. >>' constructs and returns the old(er) style with just 'C<>'; '<' and '>' are replaced by 'E<lt>' and 'E<gt>'.

This can be used to pre-process Pod before using tools which do not recognise the new style Pods.

METHODS

escape_ltgt

Replace '<' and '>' by 'E<lt>' and 'E<gt>'.

simple_delimiters

Replace delimiters by '<' and '>'.

textblock

Redefine textblock from Pod::Parser to use escape_ltgt and simple_delimiters.

EXPORT

None by default.
