in thread pod::usage "-sections" not working

It should be something simple. Try this for the SPECIAL section:
#!/usr/bin/perl BEGIN { $| = 1; $^W = 1; } use strict; use warnings; use Pod::Usage; use Getopt::Long; my $help = 0; pod2usage(2) unless GetOptions('help|?' => \$help); my $verbose = 99; my $message_text = "special usage stuff here...\n"; my $sections = 'SPECIAL'; pod2usage( -verbose => $verbose, -message => $message_text, -sections => $sections, ); __END__ =head1 SYNOPSIS here's the main usage stuff =head1 SPECIAL special usage stuff here... =cut
