in reply to Cygwin Pod::Usage malfunction?

the last time I tracked a problem with POD for quite a while it was due to different line endings. My suggestion would be to double- and triple check the \n and \r's in your code.

Of course I can't promise that this is _it_. Please consider this "just another hint". :-)

    That was the magic bullet. Thanks, Stefan!

    What happened:

    Evidently I have a lazy text editor (however, it has support for DOS/Unix line endings, AND can do Unicode).

    When I took '' and saved it as '' with Unix line endings, there was no difference. When I took '' and saved it as '' with Unix line endings, it worked! Until I changed the name, it didn't feel like it needed to do any work converting line endings.

    That solves the problem. All I have to do is convert over my template files to the correct endings, and I'm good to go.

    Thanks again!
