perl2html - generate Perl documentation in HTML


perl2html [--[no]toc] [--hr level] [--bgcolor #rrggbb] [--text #rrggbb] [--v verbosity] PerlDir HTMLDir


perl2html translates Perl documentation to HTML. PerlDir is the root of the Perl source tree. The HTML pages are organized into a directory tree rooted at HTMLDir. A top-level index is written to HTMLDir/index.html

In addition to the Perl sources, perl2html searches @INC for module PODs, and $ENV{PATH} for program PODS.

All the HTML pages are created world-readable.

Perldir and HTMLDir must be absolute path names.


Includes or omits a table of contents in each page. Default is to include the TOC.
--hr level

Controls the profusion of horizontal lines in the output, as follows:

    level   horizontal lines
    0 	    none
    1 	    between TOC and body
    2 	    after each =head1
    3 	    after each =head1 and =head2  

Default is level 1.

--bgcolor #rrggbb
Set the background color to #rrggbb. Default is off-white.
--text #rrggbb
Set the text color to #rrggbb. Default is black.
--v verbosity
Verbosity level: 0, 1, 2, 3
