Pod::Perldoc::ToMan(3) let Perldoc render Pod as man pages


perldoc -o man Some::Modulename


This is a ``plug-in'' class that allows Perldoc to use Pod::Man and "groff" for reading Pod pages.

The following options are supported: center, date, fixed, fixedbold, fixeditalic, fixedbolditalic, quotes, release, section

(Those options are explained in Pod::Man.)

For example:

  perldoc -o man -w center:Pod Some::Modulename


This module may change to use a different pod-to-nroff formatter class in the future, and this may change what options are supported.
