DESCRIPTION

pod2s5 converts POD input to a S5 HTML slideshow. No additional software is required. Just write a POD file, run pod2s5 on it - and you're done.

POD

Beside the known perlpod markup some additions have been made:

Since we are generating a slideshow, the POD must be devided into pieces which can be used as slides. Slides will be separated by the =head1 title tag (which itself becomes the title of the slide.

 =head1 Intro --+
                |
 [..]           +------- Slide 1
 [..]           |
            ----+
 
 =head1 Intro --+
                |
 [..]           +------- Slide 2
 [..]           |
            ----+
 
 =head1 End   --+
                |
 [..]           +------- Slide 3
 [..]           |
            ----+

Each slide may contain any valid POD.

  • Images can be included using the tag G<image.png>. You must manually copy images to the target directory.

  • Plain HTML code can be included using the html formatter, eg:

     =begin html
     
     <title>Blah</title>
     
     =end html
  • You can create incremental slides using bullet lists, that is each list item will appear separately, as if it were on an extra slide.

    Example:

     =over
     
     =item *
     
     1st item
     
     =item *
     
     2nd item
     
     =back
  • You can add special formatters for code, which will be syntax highlighted if the module Syntax::Highlight::Engine::Kate is installed. Use the name of the programming language as the formatter name.

    Example:

     =begin perl
     
     if ($var) {
      exit;
     }
     
     =end perl

    To get a list of the available languages, refer to the Syntax::Highlight::Engine::Kate manpage.
