    +--------+   +-------+    +-------+
    |        | --+ ditaa +--> |       |
    |  Text  |   +-------+    |diagram|
    |Document|   |!magic!|    |       |
    |     {d}|   |       |    |       |
    +---+----+   +-------+    +-------+

DESCRIPTION

It has often been said that a picture is worth a thousand words. I find that sometimes a diagram truly can illuminate your design. This Pod::Weaver plugin allows you to put ditaa diagrams in your pod and render the image for an html view. In text mode it merely uses the text diagram directly.

Note that you may put a label: Foo at the top of your diagram, but if you do not you will get a numbered label in the format Figure $i.

IN ACTION

How it works

SYNTAX

The ditaa syntax is documented here.

PASSING FLAGS TO DITAA

 =begin ditaa -r -S

 label: Passing Flags

    +--------+
    |        |
    |  Test  |
    |        |
    +---+----+

 =end ditaa

Passing Flags

To pass flags to ditaa simply append the flags to the =begin ditaa directive.

DEBUGGING

Set the DITAA_TRACE env var and you'll see all of the commands that this plugin runs printed to STDERR. If you set the env var to keep the temporary files referenced in the command will not automatically be deleted, so you can ensure that the text and image diagrams were created correctly.

PERL SUPPORT POLICY

Because this module is geared towards helping release code, as opposed to helping run code, I only aim at supporting the last 3 releases of Perl. So for example, at the time of writing that would be 5.22, 5.20, and 5.18. As an author who is developing against Perl and using this to release modules, you can use either perlbrew or plenv to get a more recent perl for building releases.

Don't bother sending patches to support older versions; I could probably support 5.8 if I wanted, but this is more so that I can continue to use new perl features.
