NAME

Pod::Text::Termcap - Convert POD data to ASCII text with format escapes  

SYNOPSIS

    use Pod::Text::Termcap;
    my $parser = Pod::Text::Termcap->new (sentence => 0, width => 78);

    # Read POD from STDIN and write to STDOUT.
    $parser->parse_from_filehandle;

    # Read POD from file.pod and write to file.txt.
    $parser->parse_from_file ('file.pod', 'file.txt');

 

DESCRIPTION

Pod::Text::Termcap is a simple subclass of Pod::Text that highlights output text using the correct termcap escape sequences for the current terminal. Apart from the format codes, it in all ways functions like Pod::Text. See Pod::Text for details and available options.

This module uses Term::Cap to find the correct terminal settings. See the documentation of that module for how it finds terminal database information and how to override that behavior if necessary. If unable to find control strings for bold and underscore formatting, that formatting is skipped, resulting in the same output as Pod::Text.
