NAME

Pod::Text::Termcap - Convert POD data to ASCII text with format escapes

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



    use Pod::Text::Termcap;
    my $parser = Pod::Text::Termcap->new (sentence => 0, width => 78);

    # Read POD from STDIN and write to STDOUT.
    $parser->parse_from_filehandle;

    # Read POD from file.pod and write to file.txt.
    $parser->parse_from_file (file.pod, file.txt);



DESCRIPTION

Pod::Text::Termcap is a simple subclass of Pod::Text that highlights output text using the correct termcap escape sequences for the current terminal. Apart from the format codes, it in all ways functions like Pod::Text. See Pod::Text for details and available options.

ENVIRONMENT

This module sets the TERMPATH environment variable globally to:



    $HOME/.termcap:/etc/termcap:/usr/share/misc/termcap:/usr/share/lib/termcap



if it isn’t already set. (The first entry is omitted if the HOME environment variable isn’t set.) This is a (very old) workaround for problems finding termcap information on older versions of Solaris, and is not good module behavior. Please do not rely on this behavior; it may be dropped in a future release.

NOTES

This module uses Term::Cap to retrieve the formatting escape sequences for the current terminal, and falls back on the ECMA-48 (the same in this regard as ANSI X3.64 and ISO 6429, the escape codes also used by DEC VT100 terminals) if the bold, underline, and reset codes aren’t set in the termcap information.

SEE ALSO

Pod::Text, Pod::Simple, Term::Cap

The current version of this module is always available from its web site at <http://www.eyrie.org/~eagle/software/podlators/>. It is also part of the Perl core distribution as of 5.6.0.
