pod2test - Convert embedded tests and code examples to .t files
pod2test [-Mmodule] [input [output]]
<B>pod2testB> is a front-end for Pod::Tests (formerly Test::Inline 1).
It generates TAP-compatible .t testing scripts from embedded tests and
If output is not specified, the resulting .t file will go to STDOUT.
Otherwise, it will go to the given output file. If input is not
given, it will draw from STDIN.
If the given file contains no tests or code examples, no output will
be given, no output file will be created and pod2test will exit with
The Test::More module is made available to the testing blocks using
the no_plan feature. Any further modules which should be used are
specified with -M. <B>UNIMPLEMENTEDB>
BUGS and CAVEATS
This is a very simple rough cut. It only does very rudimentary tests
on the examples.
This script has been superceded by inline2test from the newer
Test::Inline 2. Most testing code that currently works with
pod2test should continue to work with the new version.
The most notable exceptions are =for begin and =for end, which
are deprecated in the newer version.
After upgrading Test::Inline, Pod::Tests and pod2test were split
out to provide a compatibility package for legacy code.
pod2test will stay in CPAN, but should remain unchanged indefinately,
with the exception of any minor bugs that will require squishing.
Bugs in this dist should be reported via the following URL. Feature requests
should not be submitted, as further development is now occuring in
