NAME

tkpod - Perl/Tk Pod browser

SYNOPSIS

    tkpod   [-tk] [[-no]tree] [-Mblib] [-I dir] [-d|debug] [-s|server]
            [-filedialog module]
            [-f function | -q FAQRegex | directory | name [...]]

DESCRIPTION

tkpod is a simple Pod browser with hypertext capabilities. Pod (Plain Old Document) is a simple and readable markup language that could be mixed with perl code.

Pods are searched by default in @INC and $ENV{PATH}. Directories listed on the command line or with the -I option are added to the default search path.

For each name listed on the command line tkpod tries to find Pod in name, name.pod and name.pm in the search path. For each name a new Pod browser window is opened.

If no name is listed, then the main perl pod is opened instead.

OPTIONS

-tree

When specified, tkpod will show a tree window with all available Pods on the local host. However, this may be slow on startup, especially first time because there is no cache yet. You can always turn on the tree view with the menu entry 'View' -> 'Pod Tree'.

-tk

Useful for perl/Tk documentation. When specified it adds all Tk subdirectories in @INC to the Pod search path. This way when Scrolled is selected in the browser the Tk/Scrolled documentation is found.

-s or -server

Start tkpod in server mode. Subsequent calls to tkpod (without the -s option) will cause to load the requested Pods into the server program, thus minimizing startup time and memory usage. Note that there is no access control, so this might be a security hole!

-d or -debug

Turn debugging on.

-Mblib

Add the blib directories under the current directory to the Pod search path.

-I dir

Add another directory to the Pod search path. Note that the space is mandatory.

-f function

Show documentation for function.

-q FAQRegex

Show the FAQ entry matching FAQRegex.

-filedialog module

Use an alternative file dialog module, e.g. Tk::FileSelect, Tk::FBox or Tk::PathEntry::Dialog.

USAGE

How to navigate with the Pod browser is described in Tk::Pod_usage. It's also accessible via the menu 'Help' -> 'Usage...'.

ENVIRONMENT

TKPODPORT

Force a port for tkpod's server mode.

TKPODDIRS

A list of directories (on Unix usually separated by :, on Windows by ;) for additional Pod directories. These directories will appear in the "local dirs" section of the tree view.

See "Environment" in Tk::Pod::Text and "Environment" in Tk::Pod::FindPods for more environment variables.
