Pod::Weaver::Section::Generic(3) a generic section, found by lifting sections


version 4.013


This section will find and include a located hunk of Pod. In general, it will find a "=head1" command with a content of the plugin's name.

In other words, if your configuration include:

  header = OVERVIEW

...then this weaver will look for ``=head1 OVERVIEW'' and include it at the appropriate location in your output.

Since you'll probably want to use Generic several times, and that will require giving each use a unique name, you can omit "header" if you provide a plugin name, and it will default to the plugin name. In other words, the configuration above could be specified just as:

  [Generic / OVERVIEW]

If the "required" attribute is given, and true, then an exception will be raised if this section can't be found.



A boolean value specifying whether this section is required to be present or not. Defaults to false.

If it's enabled and the section can't be found an exception will be raised.


The name of this section. Defaults to the plugin name.
