POD L<> and relative links?by skazat (Chaplain)
|on Oct 19, 2006 at 21:19 UTC||Need Help??|
skazat has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
In my pod, if I have something like this:
(EDIT: I'm currently using the pod2html utility, ala:
, I'll get an error like this:
cannot resolve L<thisfile.html> in paragraph xxx.
If I set the above to something like:
and, "http://example.com/thisfile.html" exists, it works.
Any way to turn off the "check if it's actually there" test? I've got C<pod2html> in a little makefile - type script, so there's times where it's not going to be around in a URL and may not be around in the environment it's being parsed and created.
using the pod2html utility, I thought I'd see if passing the, --htmlroot parameter would help things - giving a base to place the relative URL to - no dice.
I guess the question *really* is, how do you pass a relative URL to an HTML document inside an L<> thingy in POD. If you can't, I guess I'm outta luck.
I guess I'll also look at the P6 version of POD and see if there's a way in there for the future. (crosses fingers)
