    pod2html is very, very far from the abilities of Doxygen.

    Doxygen's main virtue isn't only to understand special comments and to generate HTML for them. The thing people like the most in it is its ability to parse the code and generate call graphs, class hierarchies, and other extremely useful information like a list of callers/callees for functions.

    I wish there was such a tool for Perl !

      I would be curious to know how you imagine that such a tool would work in a dynamically typed language like Perl.
        I think that if this tool just documents all the "normal" subs, classes, modules and globals, it will be of great aid. I won't cry if it won't handle subroutines created on the fly, and things like this. It's enough to cover the 99% frequent usage constructs.

      Seconded. I do not like Java at all, but the javadoc documentation is streets ahead of perldoc and is mostly self maintaining.

      Examine what is said, not who speaks.
      Silence betokens consent.
      Love the truth but pardon error.
