POD2TEST(1)	      User Contributed Perl Documentation	   POD2TEST(1)

NAME
       pod2test	- (DEPRECATED) Convert embedded	tests and code examples	to .t
       files

SYNOPSIS
	 pod2test [-Mmodule] [input [output]]

DESCRIPTION
       pod2test	is a front-end for Pod::Tests (formerly	Test::Inline 1).  It
       generates TAP-compatible	.t testing scripts from	embedded tests and
       code examples.

       If output is not	specified, the resulting .t file will go to STDOUT.
       Otherwise, it will go to	the given output file.	If input is not	given,
       it will draw from STDIN.

       If the given file contains no tests or code examples, no	output will be
       given, no output	file will be created and pod2test will exit with 1.

       The Test::More module is	made available to the testing blocks using the
       'no_plan' feature.  Any further modules which should be used are
       specified with -M. UNIMPLEMENTED

BUGS and CAVEATS
       This is a very simple rough cut.	 It only does very rudimentary tests
       on the examples.

SUPPORT
       This script has been superceded by "inline2test"	from the newer
       Test::Inline 2. Most testing code that currently	works with "pod2test"
       should continue to work with the	new version.

       The most	notable	exceptions are "=for begin" and	"=for end", which are
       deprecated in the newer version.

       After upgrading Test::Inline, Pod::Tests	and "pod2test" were split out
       to provide a compatibility package for legacy code.

       "pod2test" will stay in CPAN, but should	remain unchanged indefinately,
       with the	exception of any minor bugs that will require squishing.

       Bugs in this dist should	be reported via	the following URL. Feature
       requests	should not be submitted, as further development	is now
       occuring	in Test::Inline.
