NAME

pod2texi - convert Pod to Texinfo

SYNOPSIS

pod2texi [OPTION]... POD...

DESCRIPTION

Translate Pod file(s) to Texinfo. There are two basic modes of operation. First, by default, each pod is translated to a standalone Texinfo manual. Second, if "--base-level" is set higher than 0, each pod is translated to a file suitable for @include, and one more file with all the @includes is generated, intended to be @included in turn within a hand- written top-level file.

OPTIONS

--appendix-sections Use appendix sectioning commands (@appendix, ...) instead of the default numbered sectioning Texinfo @-commands (@chapter, @section, ...). --base-level=NUM|NAME Sets the level of the "head1" commands. It may be an integer or a Texinfo sectioning command (without the "@"): 1 corresponds to the @chapter/@unnumbered level, 2 to the @section level, and so on. The default is 0, meaning that "head1" commands are still output as chapters, but the output is arranged as a standalone manual. If the level is not 0, the pod file is rendered as a fragment of a Texinfo manual suitable for @include. In this case, each pod file has an additional sectioning command covering the entire file, one level above the "--base-level" value. Therefore, to make each pod file a chapter in a large manual, you should use "section" as the base level. For an example of making Texinfo out of the Perl documentation itself, see "contrib/perldoc-all" in the Texinfo source distribution, with output available at <http://www.gnu.org/software/perl/manual>. --debug=NUM Set debugging level to NUM. --help Display help and exit. --output=NAME Name for the first manual, or the main manual if there is a main manual. Default is to write to standard output. --no-section-nodes Use anchors for sections instead of nodes. --no-fill-section-gaps Do not fill sectioning gaps with empty @unnumbered files. Ordinarily, it's good to keep the sectioning hierarchy intact. --preamble=STR Insert STR as top boilerplate before includes. The default is a minimal beginning for a Texinfo document, and sets @documentencoding to "utf-8" (because the output is written that way). --subdir=NAME If there is a main manual with include files (each corresponding to an input pod file), then those include files are put in directory NAME. --unnumbered-sections Use unnumbered sectioning commands (@unnumbered, ...) instead of the default numbered sectioning Texinfo @-commands (@chapter, @section, ...). --top=TOP Name of the @top element for the main manual. May contain Texinfo code. --version Display version information and exit.
