Pod::Simple::DumpAsXML -- turn Pod into XML

Pod::Simple::DumpAsXML is a subclass of Pod::Simple that parses Pod
and turns it into indented and wrapped XML.
This class is of
interest to people writing Pod formatters based on Pod::Simple.
Pod::Simple::DumpAsXML inherits methods from
Pod::Simple::XMLOutStream is rather like this class.
Pod::Simple::XMLOutStream's output is space-padded in a way
that's better for sending to an XML
processor (that is, it has
no ignorable whitespace). But
Pod::Simple::DumpAsXML's output is much more human-readable, being
(more-or-less) one token per line, with line-wrapping.
Pod::Simple::DumpAsText is rather like this class,
except that it doesn't dump with XML syntax. Try them and see
which one you like best!
The older libraries Pod::PXML, Pod::XML, Pod::SAX
