NAME ^

Module::Install::ReadmeMarkdownFromPod - create README.mkdn from POD

SYNOPSIS ^

    # in Makefile.PL
    use inc::Module::Install;
    name 'Some-Module';
    readme_markdown_from 'lib/Some/Module.pm';

DESCRIPTION ^

Module::Install::ReadmeMarkdownFromPod is a Module::Install extension that generates a README.mkdn file automatically from an indicated file containing POD whenever the author runs Makefile.PL. This file is used by GitHub to display nicely formatted information about a repository.

FUNCTIONS ^

readme_markdown_from

Does nothing on the user-side. On the author-side it will generate a README.mkdn file using Pod::Markdown from the POD in the file passed as a parameter.

    readme_markdown_from 'lib/Some/Module.pm';

If a second parameter is set to a true value then the README.mkdn will be removed at make distclean.

    readme_markdown_from 'lib/Some/Module.pm' => 'clean';

It will die unless a file name is given.

readme_markdown_from_pod

Like readme_markdown_from but assumes that all_from has been called before and uses the filename stored there to generate the README.mkdn. It then calls readme_markdown_from with that filename. If this function is given an optional boolean parameter, that will be passed to readme_markdown_from as well, indicating whether to clean up the generated README.mkdn file at make distclean time.

readme_from_pod

Like readme_markdown_from_pod, but affects the plain-text README file generation done in Module::Install::ReadmeFromPod. This function would be better placed in that module and might move there eventually. It is given here as a convenience because if you want to generate both README and README.mkdn you can do this here without repeating the filename given in all_from.

reference_module

A utility function that saves you from repeatedly naming a reference module from which to extract information.

    reference_module 'lib/Some/Module.pm';

is equivalent to:

    all_from 'lib/Some/Module.pm';
    readme_from 'lib/Some/Module.pm';
    readme_markdown_from 'lib/Some/Module.pm';

It will die unless a file name is given. Note that reference_module will not work with Shipit::Step::FindVersion because that module is looking for a version_from or all_from string in Makefile.PL
