DESCRIPTION"Pod::Tree::PerlFunc" translates perlfunc.pod to HTML. It creates a separate HTML page for each function description in perlfunc.pod. The pages for the individual descriptions are named after the function and written to a func/ subdirectory. perlfunc.html is generated as an index to all the pages in func/.
"Pod::Tree::PerlFunc" generates and uses an index of the functions that it finds in perlfunc.pod to construct HTML links. Other modules can also use this index.
- $perl_func = "new" "Pod::Tree::PerlFunc" $perl_dir, $HTML_dir, $perl_map, %options
Creates and returns a new "Pod::Tree::PerlFunc" object.
$perl_dir is the root of the Perl source tree.
$HTML_dir is the directory where HTML files will be written.
$perl_map maps function names to URLs.
%options are passed through to "Pod::Tree::HTML".
- Reads perlfunc.pod and identifies all the functions in it. Each function that is identified is entered into $perl_map.
- Generates a top-level index of all the functions. The index is written to HTML_dir"/pod/perlfunc.html".
- Translates each function found by "scan" to HTML. The HTML pages are written to HTML_dir"/pod/func/".
LINKING"Pod::Tree::PerlFunc" indexes every "=item" paragraph in perlfunc.html. To link, for example, to the "abs" function, write
5.005; Pod::Tree; Pod::Tree::HTML; Pod::Tree::PerlUtil;
