Pod::Weaver::Section::SeeAlso - add a SEE ALSO pod section


  This document describes v1.002 of Pod::Weaver::Section::SeeAlso - released February 21, 2011 as part of Pod-Weaver-Section-SeeAlso.


This section plugin will produce a hunk of pod that references the main module of a dist from it's submodules and adds any other text already present in the pod. It will do this only if it is being built with Dist::Zilla because it needs the data from the dzil object.

In the main module, this section plugin just transforms the links into a proper list. In the submodules, it also adds the link to the main module.

For an example of what the hunk looks like, look at the "SEE ALSO" section in this POD :)

WARNING: Please do not put any POD commands in your SEE ALSO section!

What you should do when you want to add extra links is:

        =head1 SEE ALSO

And this module will automatically convert it into:

        =head1 SEE ALSO
        =over 4
        =item *
        =item *
        =item *
        =item *

You can specify more links by using the "links" attribute or by specifying it as a comment. The format of the comment is:

        # SEEALSO: Foo::Bar, Module::Nice::Foo, www.foo.com

At this time you can only use one comment line. If you need to do it multiple times, please prod me to update the module or give me a patch :)

The way the links are ordered is: POD in the module, links attribute, comment links.



A boolean value controlling whether the link back to the main module should be added in the submodules.

Defaults to true.


Specify the content to be displayed before the list of links is shown.

The default is a sufficient explanation (see "SEE ALSO").


Specify a list of links you want to add to the SEE ALSO section.

You can either specify it like this: "Foo::Bar" or do it in POD format: "Foo::Bar". This module will automatically add the proper POD formatting if it is missing.

The default is an empty list.
