PODVIEWER(1)	      User Contributed Perl Documentation	  PODVIEWER(1)

NAME
       podviewer - a Gtk2-Perl POD Reading Program

SYNOPSIS
	       podviewer [FILE|MODULE|FUNCTION|POD]

DESCRIPTION
       "podviewer" provides a simple and attractive way	to read	Perl's POD
       documentation. You can use it to	read the Perl POD pages, module
       documentation and information about Perl's builtin functions.

KEYBOARD SHORTCUTS
       "podviewer" supports a wide number of keyboard shortcuts. They are
       documented here.

       o   "Ctrl-U" or "Alt-Up"

	   Go up a level. That is, if you're reading the documentation for
	   "Foo::Bar", typing "Ctrl-U" will take you to	the "Foo" page.

       o   "Alt-Left"

	   Go back in your browsing history.

       o   "Alt-Right"

	   Go forward in your browsing history.

       o   "Ctrl-H"

	   Go home. If you have	the "home" option set in your config (see
	   below), entering "Ctrl-H" will take you there.

       o   "Ctrl-L"

	   This	toggles	the document index.

       o   "Ctrl-O"

	   This	pops up	a dialog allowing you to choose	a document to read.

       o   "Ctrl-R" or "F5"

	   This	reloads	the current document.

       o   "Ctrl-Q"

	   This	quits the program.

       o   "Ctrl-F"

	   This	pops up	a dialog for you to enter some search text.

       o   "Ctrl-G"

	   This	performs the previous search, but from the most	recently found
	   result. You can also	repeat the previous search by pressing enter
	   when	the cursor is in the search box.

       o   "F1"

	   Loads this document.

CONFIGURATION OPTIONS
       "podviewer" stores its configuration settings in	a resource file,
       located at "$HOME/.podviewrc". This file	contains simple	"name=value"
       pairs for various things:

       o   "icon-size"

	   If you want to change the size of the icons on the toolbar, change
	   this	value. The values are standard Gtk+ stock values.

       o   "home"

	   This	is the name of the document you	want to	be your	home page.
	   This	page is	loaded when you	start the program without arguments,
	   hit the Home	button,	or type	"Ctrl-H".
