Module::Install::ReadmeMarkdownFromPod - create README.mkdn from POD
# in Makefile.PL use inc::Module::Install; name 'Some-Module'; readme_markdown_from 'lib/Some/Module.pm';
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.
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.
If a second parameter is set to a true value then the
README.mkdn will be removed at
readme_markdown_from 'lib/Some/Module.pm' => 'clean';
It will die unless a file name is given.
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_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.mkdn you can do this here without repeating the filename given in
A utility function that saves you from repeatedly naming a reference module from which to extract information.
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
all_from string in
