NAME

Pod::Perldoc::ToTerm - render Pod with terminal escapes  

SYNOPSIS

  perldoc -o term Some::Modulename

 

DESCRIPTION

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 term -w indent:5 Some::Modulename

 

PAGER FORMATTING

Depending on the platform, and because this class emits terminal escapes it will attempt to set the "-R" flag on your pager by injecting the flag into your environment variable for "less" or "more".

On Windows and DOS, this class will not modify any environment variables.  

CAVEAT

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