NAME

Pod::Tree::PerlTop - generate a top-level index for Perl PODs

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



  $perl_map = Pod::Tree::PerlMap->new;
  $perl_top = Pod::Tree::PerlTop->new( $perl_dir, $HTML_dir, $perl_map, %opts );
 
  $perl_top->index(@translators);
  $perl_top->translate;
 
  $top = $perl_top->get_top_entry;



DESCRIPTION

Pod::Tree::PerlTop generates a top-level index for Perl PODs.

It also translates perl.pod to perl.html The translator is specially hacked to insert links into the big verbatim paragraph that lists all the other Perl PODs.

METHODS

$perl_top = new Pod::Tree::PerlTop $perl_dir, $HTML_dir, $perl_map, %options Creates and returns a new Pod::Tree::PerlTop object.

$perl_dir is the root of the Perl source tree.

$HTML_dir is the directory where HTML files will be written.

$perl_map maps POD names to URLs. Pod::Tree::PerlTop uses it to resolve links in the perl.pod page.

%options are passed through to Pod::Tree::HTML.

$perl_top->index(@translators) Generates a top-level index of all the PODs. The index is written to HTML_dir/index.html.

@translators is a list of other Pod::Tree::Perl* translator objects. index makes a get_top_entry call on each of them to obtain URLs and descriptions of the pages that it links to.

$perl_top->translate Translates the perl.pod file to HTML. The HTML page is written to HTML_dir/pod/perl.html
$perl_top->get_top_entry Returns a hash reference of the form



  { URL         => $URL,
    description => $description }



Pod::Tree::PerlTop uses this to build a top-level index of all the Perl PODs.
