Tk::PodSingle - Pod browser toplevel widget for single pod files


This module inherits Tk::Pod and slightly changes its' features by removing menu entries (and bindings) that pertain to opening a different pod file.

It is suitable for when you want to only display a single pod file or a group of self-contained pod files. It hides access to the system's pod archive and removes the options that allow opening a new pod file.

What it does not do is prevent going to a different pod file through a link in the loaded pod file. This is why I kept the History menu intact.

The widget is created like this:

        use Tk::PodSingle;
        $Pod = $Parent->PodSingle(-file => $name);

Other than the removed menu entries and bindings, it behaves exactly as Tk::Pod does.
