Pod::Perldoc::ToText(3) let Perldoc render Pod as plaintext


perldoc -o text Some::Modulename


This is a ``plug-in'' class that allows Perldoc to use Pod::Text as a formatter class.

It supports the following options, which are explained in Pod::Text: alt, indent, loose, quotes, sentence, width

For example:

  perldoc -o text -w indent:5 Some::Modulename


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