Pod::Weaver::Section::WarrantyDisclaimer - Add a standard DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTY section (for your Perl module)
In weaver.ini, probably near the end:
This section plugin will add a standard DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTY section to your POD. See the bottom of this module's documentation for the content of this section.
Note that there are several other warranty texts available that correspond to the text used in various open-source licenses, such as Pod::Weaver::Section::WarrantyDisclaimer::GPL2. If your code's license has a specific warranty clause, you should try to use the corresponding module, so that the warranty text in your modules will match that of the license. If a warranty disclaimer module is not provided for your license of choice, you can easily create one by subclassing this class and overriding the methods
warranty_text. Alternatively, you can simply use
[WarrantyDisclaimer::Custom] and then use the
text options to specify your custom warranty.
This method provides the text to be used as the title of the warranty section. It can be overridden by subclasses to provide different warranties.
This method provides the text to be used in the warranty section. It can be overridden by subclasses to provide different warranties.
