DESCRIPTION

Converts files from pod format (see perlpod) to HTML format.

ARGUMENTS

pod2html takes the following arguments:
help
  --help
    

Displays the usage message.

htmldir
  --htmldir=name
    

Sets the directory to which all cross references in the resulting HTML file will be relative. Not passing this causes all links to be absolute since this is the value that tells Pod::Html the root of the documentation tree.

Do not use this and --htmlroot in the same call to pod2html; they are mutually exclusive.

htmlroot
  --htmlroot=URL
    

Sets the base URL for the HTML files. When cross-references are made, the HTML root is prepended to the URL.

Do not use this if relative links are desired: use --htmldir instead.

Do not pass both this and --htmldir to pod2html; they are mutually exclusive.

infile
  --infile=name
    

Specify the pod file to convert. Input is taken from STDIN if no infile is specified.

outfile
  --outfile=name
    

Specify the HTML file to create. Output goes to STDOUT if no outfile is specified.

podroot
  --podroot=name
    

Specify the base directory for finding library pods.

podpath
  --podpath=name:...:name
    

Specify which subdirectories of the podroot contain pod files whose HTML converted forms can be linked-to in cross-references.

cachedir
  --cachedir=name
    

Specify which directory is used for storing cache. Default directory is the current working directory.

flush
  --flush
    

Flush the cache.

backlink
  --backlink
    

Turn =head1 directives into links pointing to the top of the HTML file.

nobacklink
  --nobacklink
    

Do not turn =head1 directives into links pointing to the top of the HTML file (default behaviour).

header
  --header
    

Create header and footer blocks containing the text of the "NAME" section.

noheader
  --noheader
    

Do not create header and footer blocks containing the text of the "NAME" section (default behaviour).

poderrors
  --poderrors
    

Include a "POD ERRORS" section in the outfile if there were any POD errors in the infile (default behaviour).

nopoderrors
  --nopoderrors
    

Do not include a "POD ERRORS" section in the outfile if there were any POD errors in the infile.

index
  --index
    

Generate an index at the top of the HTML file (default behaviour).

noindex
  --noindex
    

Do not generate an index at the top of the HTML file.

recurse
  --recurse
    

Recurse into subdirectories specified in podpath (default behaviour).

norecurse
  --norecurse
    

Do not recurse into subdirectories specified in podpath.

css
  --css=URL
    

Specify the URL of cascading style sheet to link from resulting HTML file. Default is none style sheet.

title
  --title=title
    

Specify the title of the resulting HTML file.

quiet
  --quiet
    

Don't display mostly harmless warning messages.

noquiet
  --noquiet
    

Display mostly harmless warning messages (default behaviour). But this is not the same as "verbose" mode.

verbose
  --verbose
    

Display progress messages.

noverbose
  --noverbose
    

Do not display progress messages (default behaviour).
