In directory ivanova.netbsd.org:/tmp/cvs-serv9276
Importing textproc/p5-Pod-Abstract as dependency of upcoming Padre
POD::Abstract provides a means to load a POD (or POD compatible) document
without direct reference to it's syntax, and perform manipulations on the
abstract syntax tree.
This can be used to support additional features for POD, to format output,
to compile into alternative formats, etc.
If you've ever asked yourself "What does Pod do for me?", this module is
intended to answer that question.
While Pod looks like a simple format, the specification calls for a number
of special cases to be handled, and that makes any software that works on
Pod as text more complex than it needs to be.
In addition to this, Pod does not lend itself to a natural structured model.
This makes it difficult to manipulate without damaging the validity of the
Pod::Abstract solves these problems by loading the document into a structured
tree, and providing consistent traversal, searching, manpulation and
re-serialisation. Pod related utilities are easy to write using Pod::Abstract.
