Pod::Coverage::TrustPod(3) allow a module's pod to contain Pod::Coverage hints


version 0.100003


This is a Pod::Coverage subclass (actually, a subclass of Pod::Coverage::CountParents) that allows the POD itself to declare certain symbol names trusted.

Here is a sample Perl module:

  package Foo::Bar;
  =head1 NAME
  Foo::Bar - a bar at which fooes like to drink
  =head1 METHODS
  =head2 fee
  returns the bar tab
  sub fee { ... }
  =head2 fie
  scoffs at bar tab
  sub fie { ... }
  sub foo { ... }
  =begin Pod::Coverage
  =end Pod::Coverage

This file would report full coverage, because any non-empty lines inside a block of POD targeted to Pod::Coverage are treated as "trustme" patterns. Leading and trailing whitespace is stripped and the remainder is treated as a regular expression anchored at both ends.

Remember, anywhere you could use "=begin" and "=end" as above, you could instead write:

  =for Pod::Coverage foo

In some cases, you may wish to make the entire file trusted. The special pattern "*EVERYTHING*" may be provided to do just this.

Keep in mind that Pod::Coverage::TrustPod sets up exceptions using the ``trust'' mechanism rather than the ``privacy'' mechanism in Pod::Coverage. This is unlikely ever to matter to you, but it's true.
