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.
