Pod::To::Man cpan:CLARKEMA last updated on 2019-06-09



Render Perl 6 Pod as Roff for man(1), so your scripts can have proper manpages.


zef install Pod::To::Man


From the command line:

perl6 --doc=Man your_script > your_script.1


This is a very early work in progress, and the Roff is not ideal. Certain features such as nested lists haven't received much attention yet. On the other hand, it's already useful enough to produce much nicer documentation for some of my scripts than the plain text formatter.

Issues / patches / pull requests / Roff formatting suggestions are all extremely welcome.
