NAME ^

installhtml - converts a collection of POD pages to HTML format.

SYNOPSIS ^

    installhtml  [--help] [--podpath=<name>:...:<name>] [--podroot=<name>]
         [--htmldir=<name>] [--htmlroot=<name>]  [--norecurse] [--recurse]
         [--splithead=<name>,...,<name>]   [--splititem=<name>,...,<name>]
         [--ignore=<name>,...,<name>]  [--verbose]

DESCRIPTION ^

installhtml converts a collection of POD pages to a corresponding collection of HTML pages. This is primarily used to convert the pod pages found in the perl distribution.

OPTIONS ^

--help help

Displays the usage.

--podroot POD search path base directory

The base directory to search for all .pod and .pm files to be converted. Default is current directory.

--podpath POD search path

The list of directories to search for .pod and .pm files to be converted. Default is 'podroot/.'.

--recurse recurse on subdirectories

Whether or not to convert all .pm and .pod files found in subdirectories too. Default is to not recurse.

--htmldir HTML destination directory

The base directory which all HTML files will be written to. This should be a path relative to the filesystem, not the resulting URL.

--htmlroot URL base directory

The base directory which all resulting HTML files will be visible at in a URL. The default is '/'.

--splithead POD files to split on =head directive

Comma-separated list of pod files to split by the =head directive. The .pod suffix is optional. These files should have names specified relative to podroot.

--splititem POD files to split on =item directive

Comma-separated list of all pod files to split by the =item directive. The .pod suffix is optional. installhtml does not do the actual split, rather it invokes splitpod to do the dirty work. As with --splithead, these files should have names specified relative to podroot.

--splitpod Directory containing the splitpod program

The directory containing the splitpod program. The default is 'podroot/pod'.

--ignore files to be ignored

Comma-separated of files that shouldn't be installed, given relative to podroot.

--verbose verbose output

Self-explanatory.

EXAMPLE ^

The following command-line is an example of the one we use to convert perl documentation:

    ./installhtml --podpath=lib:ext:pod:vms   \
                        --podroot=/usr/src/perl     \
                        --htmldir=/perl/nmanual     \
                        --htmlroot=/perl/nmanual    \
                        --splithead=pod/perlipc     \
                        --splititem=pod/perlfunc    \
                        --recurse \
                        --verbose
