NAME

Pod::Index::Entry - Represents Pod search result

SYNOPSIS

    use Pod::Index::Entry;

    my $entry =  Pod::Index::Entry->new(
        keyword  => 'constructors',
        podname  => 'perlobj',
        line     => 42,
        filename => '/usr/lib/perl5/5.8.7/pod/perlobj.pod',
        context  => 'Using POD',
    );

    # trivial accessors
    my $podname  = $entry->podname;
    my $filename = $entry->filename;
    my $line     = $entry->line;
    my $context  = $entry->context;
    my $keyword  = $entry->keyword;

    # extract the POD for this entry
    my $pod      = $entry->pod;

DESCRIPTION

This class represents a POD index entry. An entry is defined by the podname/filename, line number, and context. The entry object also has the ability to extract the POD "scope" from the filename.

METHODS

new
    my $q = Pod::Index::Entry->new(%args);

Create a new search object. Possible arguments are:

podname

The name of the pod, such as .

filename

The filename for the pod, such as Data/Dumper.pm.

line

The line number where the scope of this entry begins.

context

The title of the section that contains this entry.

podname
filename
line
context

These are just simple accessors that return the value of these properties, as given to the constructor.

pod

Extracts the POD for the scope of the entry from $self->filename, beginning at $self->line. For a definition of scope, see Pod::Index. The POD extraction is delegated to the Pod::Index::Extract module.
