NAME ^

Perl6::Pod::FormattingCode::D - Definition

SYNOPSIS ^

    A D<formatting code|formatting codes;formatters> provides a way
    to add inline mark-up to a piece of text.

DESCRIPTION ^

The D<> formatting code indicates that the contained text is a definition, introducing a term that the adjacent text elucidates. It is the inline equivalent of a =defn block. For example:

    There ensued a terrible moment of D<coyotus interruptus>: a brief
    suspension of the effects of gravity, accompanied by a sudden
    to-the-camera realisation of imminent downwards acceleration.

A definition may be given synonyms, which are specified after a vertical bar and separated by semicolons:

    A D<formatting code|formatting codes;formatters> provides a way
    to add inline mark-up to a piece of text.

A definition would typically be rendered in italics or <dfn>...</dfn> tags and will often be used as a link target for subsequent instances of the term (or any of its specified synonyms) within a hypertext.
