Pod::Simple::Checker -- check the Pod syntax of a document


perl -MPod::Simple::Checker -e \
 "exit Pod::Simple::Checker->filter(shift)->any_errata_seen" \


This class is for checking the syntactic validity of Pod. It works by basically acting like a simple-minded version of Pod::Simple::Text that formats only the "Pod Errors" section (if Pod::Simple even generates one for the given document).

This is a subclass of Pod::Simple and inherits all its methods.


Pod::Simple, Pod::Simple::Text, Pod::Checker
