POD allows for the documentation of Perl code. But with a few tricks, e.g., when disguised as comments, it is applicable to many other languages, too. It resembles HTML in the way that it allows for the structured representation of text. Hence, it looks rather good when converted for printers, HTML or man pages. This package represents more than a mere alternative to pod2man|groff -man to achieve a coversion from POD to PostScript and from there via ps2pdf to PDF. Its major advantage lies in the inclusion of images for the documentation. This renders POD suitable for many smallish projects as a lingua franca for their documentation - associated with the source and separate documents - so texts (and graphics) can be shared more easily between documenters and programmers.
