SYNOPSIS ^

    pod2readme -f markdown lib/MyApp.pm

DESCRIPTION ^

This utility will use Pod::Readme to extract a README file from a POD document.

It works by extracting and filtering the POD, and then calling the appropriate filter program to convert the POD to another format.

OPTIONS ^

--backup

By default, pod2readme will back up the output file. To disable this, use the --no-backup option.

--output

Specifies the name of the output file. If omitted, it will use the second command line argument, or default to the --target plus the corresponding extention of the --format.

For all intents, the default is README.

If a format other than "text" is chosen, then the appropriate extention will be added, e.g. for "markdown", the default output file is README.md.

--target

The target of the filter, which defaults to "readme".

--format

The output format, which defaults to "text".

Other supposed formats are "html", "latex", "man", "markdown", "pod", "rtf", and "xhtml".

--stdout

If enabled, it will output to the console instead of --output.

--force

By default, the README will be generated if the source files have been changed. Using --force will force the file to be updated.

Note: POD format files will always be updated.

--help

Prints the usage and exits.

SEE ALSO ^

pod2text, pod2markdown.
