NAME Pod::Simple::Pandoc - convert Pod to Pandoc document model
SYNOPSIS use Pod::Simple::Pandoc; my $parser = Pod::Simple::Pandoc->new; my $doc = $parser->parse_file( $filename ); # result is a Pandoc::Document print $doc->to_json;
DESCRIPTION This module converts POD format documentation (perlpod) to the document model used by Pandoc <>. The result can be accessed with methods of Pandoc::Element and emitted as JSON for further processing to other document formats (HTML, Markdown, LaTeX, PDF, EPUB, docx, ODT, man...). The command line script pod2pandoc makes use of this module, for instance to directly convert to PDF: pod2pandoc input.pod | pandoc -f json -t output.pdf
METHODS parse_file( $filename | *INPUT ) Reads Pod from file or filehandle and convert it to a Pandoc::Document. parse_string( $string ) Reads Pod from string and convert it to a Pandoc::Document.
MAPPING Pod elements are mapped to Pandoc elements as following: Formatting codes Formatting codes for italic text ("I<...>"), bold text ("B<...>"), and "code" ("C<...>") are mapped to Emphasized text ("Emph"), strongly emphasized text ("Strong"), and inline code ("Code"). Formatting code for filenames ("F<...>") are mapped to inline code with class "filename" ("`...`{.filename}" in Pandoc Markdown). Formatting codes inside code and filenames (e.g. "code with bold" or <> as filename) are stripped to unformatted code. Character escapes ("E<...>") and "S<...>" are directly mapped to Unicode characters. The special formatting code "X<...>" is ignored. Links Some examples of links of different kinds: <> pod2pandoc "OPTIONS" in pod2pandoc perl(1) "ENVIRONMENT" in crontab(5) hell itself! Link text can contain formatting codes: the "pod2pandoc" script Internal links are not supported yet: "MAPPING" mapping from PoD to Pandoc Titles may contain formatting "codes"! Lists 1. Numbered lists are 2. converted to "NumberedList" and · Bulleted lists are · converted to "BulletList" Definition Lists are also supported. =over/=back An "=over"..."=back" region containing no "=item" is mapped to "BlockQuote". Verbatim sections verbatim sections are mapped to code blocks Data sections Data sections with target "html" or "latex" are passed as "RawBlock". "HTML", "LaTeX", "TeX", and "tex" are recognized as alias.
LIMITATIONS Sure there are bugs. Please send bug reports < Elements/issues>! Configuration will be added in a later version.
