Pod::Html(3pm)         Perl Programmers Reference Guide         Pod::Html(3pm)




NAME

       Pod::Html - module to convert pod files to HTML


SYNOPSIS

           use Pod::Html;
           pod2html([options]);


DESCRIPTION

       Converts files from pod format (see perlpod) to HTML format.  It can
       automatically generate indexes and cross-references, and it keeps a
       cache of things it knows how to cross-reference.


FUNCTIONS

   pod2html
           pod2html("pod2html",
                    "--podpath=lib:ext:pod:vms",
                    "--podroot=/usr/src/perl",
                    "--htmlroot=/perl/nmanual",
                    "--recurse",
                    "--infile=foo.pod",
                    "--outfile=/perl/nmanual/foo.html");

       pod2html takes the following arguments:

       backlink
               --backlink

           Turns every "head1" heading into a link back to the top of the
           page.  By default, no backlinks are generated.

       cachedir
               --cachedir=name

           Creates the directory cache in the given directory.

       css
               --css=stylesheet

           Specify the URL of a cascading style sheet.  Also disables all
           HTML/CSS "style" attributes that are output by default (to avoid
           conflicts).

       flush
               --flush

           Flushes the directory cache.

       header
               --header
               --noheader

           Creates header and footer blocks containing the text of the "NAME"
           section.  By default, no headers are generated.

       help
               --help

           Displays the usage message.

       htmldir
               --htmldir=name

           Sets the directory to which all cross references in the resulting
           html file will be relative. Not passing this causes all links to be
           absolute since this is the value that tells Pod::Html the root of
           the documentation tree.

           Do not use this and --htmlroot in the same call to pod2html; they
           are mutually exclusive.

       htmlroot
               --htmlroot=name

           Sets the base URL for the HTML files.  When cross-references are
           made, the HTML root is prepended to the URL.

           Do not use this if relative links are desired: use --htmldir
           instead.

           Do not pass both this and --htmldir to pod2html; they are mutually
           exclusive.

       index
               --index
               --noindex

           Generate an index at the top of the HTML file.  This is the default
           behaviour.

       infile
               --infile=name

           Specify the pod file to convert.  Input is taken from STDIN if no
           infile is specified.

       outfile
               --outfile=name

           Specify the HTML file to create.  Output goes to STDOUT if no
           outfile is specified.

       poderrors
               --poderrors
               --nopoderrors

           Include a "POD ERRORS" section in the outfile if there were any POD
           errors in the infile. This section is included by default.

       podpath
               --podpath=name:...:name

           Specify which subdirectories of the podroot contain pod files whose
           HTML converted forms can be linked to in cross references.

       podroot
               --podroot=name

           Specify the base directory for finding library pods. Default is the
           current working directory.

       quiet
               --quiet
               --noquiet

           Don't display mostly harmless warning messages.  These messages
           will be displayed by default.  But this is not the same as
           "verbose" mode.

       recurse
               --recurse
               --norecurse

           Recurse into subdirectories specified in podpath (default
           behaviour).

       title
               --title=title

           Specify the title of the resulting HTML file.

       verbose
               --verbose
               --noverbose

           Display progress messages.  By default, they won't be displayed.

   htmlify
           htmlify($heading);

       Converts a pod section specification to a suitable section
       specification for HTML. Note that we keep spaces and special characters
       except "", ?" (Netscape problem) and the hyphen (writer's problem...).

   anchorify
           anchorify(@heading);

       Similar to "htmlify()", but turns non-alphanumerics into underscores.
       Note that "anchorify()" is not exported by default.


ENVIRONMENT

       Uses $Config{pod2html} to setup default options.
