So I've got to ask, because I really cannot find anyone giving a clear explanation (I suspect weak google-foo and knuckle-headedness on my part). But what exactly does the 'recurse' option for pod2html really do? Because I cannot seem to coerce it into doing anything **I** think it should do. The command does create two tmp files (pod2htmd.tmp and pod2htmi.tmp) that appear as though they would be downright useful for what I want, I just don't seem to get it.
What I want of course, is for it to recursively search through directories creating *.html files out of anything with perlpod in it. For me, this happens to include *.pod, *.pm and *.pl files. As an added bonus, I have other files with different, or no extensions that have perlpod in them also I would like it to convert.
It is made easier perhaps in that every directory with files in it with perlpod, ALL of them in that directory have perlpod.
I've started looking at some of the other ones out there like Pod::Simple::HTMLBatch, but it really bothers me that pod2html has this option that seems like it actually wants to do what I want, but just doesn't do it.
