in reply to making 'use strict' default conflicts with CORE modules/scripts

No, it is not a shell variable. In fact, a shell will do the eval without even having seen the if. It's just intended to be self-documentation but work the same as "if 0". (So the code is completely unneeded, since the eval...if 0 will have already done the perlification work if necessary.)

    looks for me like a workaround for shells which do handle if 0 . (though unless 1 would be fine too)

    Anyway like atcroft pointed out there seem to be diffrerent versions of pod2man circulating ...
