Pod::Weaver::PluginBundle::Author::LXP - configure Pod::Weaver like LXP


This module is part of distribution Pod-Weaver-PluginBundle-Author-LXP v1.0.0.

This distribution's version numbering follows the conventions defined at


In weaver.ini:



This Pod::Weaver plugin bundle configures Pod::Weaver the way CPAN author LXP uses it, achieving the same result as these entries in a weaver.ini file:

    ;; SETUP ;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;

    ; "A bundle for the most commonly-needed prep work for a POD
    ; document."  Not sure what it actually does, but it's probably
    ; important.

    ; "Stopwords" are words that a spell checker might otherwise flag
    ; as misspelt.  This plugin adds some words based on the
    ; distribution's content and gathers explicitly defined ones at the
    ; top so that they are also honoured.

    ; Provide a "list" POD formatter for easier definition of lists.
    transformer = List

    ;; POD RENDERING AND ORDERING ;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;

In the absence of any real documentation on how to write a Pod::Weaver plugin bundle, the presence of such bundles previously written by RJBS and DOHERTY was greatly appreciated:



See Config::MVP::Assembler::WithBundles.
