Pod::Weaver::Section::Collect::FromOther - Import sections from other POD


This document describes 0.002 of Pod::Weaver::Section::Collect::FromOther - released February 28, 2012 as part of Pod-Weaver-Section-Collect-FromOther.


Copy chunks of POD from other documents, and incorporate them. Our purpose here is to enable the easy documentation of packages that serve to combine parts of preexisting packages (and thus preexisting documentation).



Check the given $input for any commands that would trigger us, and extract/insert pod as requested.

copy_sections_from_other($module, $header_text, $opts)

Loads the POD from $module (specified as a package name, in our @INC), looks for a =head1 section with $header_text, and copies everything pulls it out until the next =head1 section.

We return the elements we find from the first command until the next section; this is to enable preface text to be skipped. This behaviour can be altered by setting $opts to 'all';

We return a series of elements suitable for inclusion directly into another document. Note that if this set includes a list, that list will be converted, with each =item command becoming a =head2.


Please see those modules/websites for more information related to this module.
