( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I stumbled over Pod::Functions which provides a list of all Perl builtins listed in perlfunc plus short-description.

use strict; use warnings; use Data::Dump qw/pp dd/; use Pod::Functions; pp '\%Flavor: ', \%Flavor; pp '\%Type_Description: ', \%Type_Description; pp '\@Type_Order: ', \@Type_Order; pp '\%Kinds: ', \%Kinds; pp '\%Type: ', \%Type;
( "\\%Flavor: ", { "-X" => "a file test (-r, -x, etc)", "__FILE__" => "the name of the current source file", "__LINE__" => "the current source line number", "__PACKAGE__" => "the current package", "__SUB__" => "the current subroutine, or C<undef> if not +in a subroutine", "abs" => "absolute value function", "accept" => "accept an incoming socket connect", "alarm" => "schedule a SIGALRM", "atan2" => "arctangent of Y/X in the range -PI to PI", ...

But it doesn't have an option to return the usage examples, like


any standard recommendation how to get this, without hacking it with Pod::Simple et al?

In reply to POD: getting usage snippets from perldoc by LanX

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
