       Pod::Index::Search - Search for keywords in an indexed pod


           use Pod::Index::Search;

           my $q = Pod::Index::Search->new;

           my @results = $q->search('getprotobyname');

           for my $r (@results) {
               printf "%s\t%s\n", $r->podname, $r->line;
               print $r->pod;

           my @subtopics = $q->subtopics('operator');


       This module searches an index created by Pod::Index::Builder. Search results are returned
       as Pod::Index::Entry objects.

       It is also possible to search for subtopics for a keyword. For example, a search for
       "operator" might return things like

           operator, conditional
           operator, filetest
           operator, logical
           operator, precedence
           operator, relational

       The subtopics returned are simple strings.


               my $q = Pod::Index::Search->new(%args);

           Create a new search object. Possible arguments are:

               The filehandle of the index to use. If omitted, "perlindex::DATA" is used.

               The filename of the index to use. Note that you can specify either "fh" or
               filename, but not both.

               A subroutine reference that takes a podname and returns a filename. A simple
               example might be:

                   sub {
                       my $podname = shift;
                       return "/usr/lib/perl5/5.8.7/pod/$podname.pod";

               The podname is in colon-delimited Perl package syntax.

               The default "filemap" returns the first file in @INC that seems to have the proper
               documentation (either a .pod or .pm file).

               If true, the search will be case-insensitive.

           Do the actual search in the index.  Returns a list of search results, as
           Pod::Index::Entry objects.

       subtopics($keyword, %options)
               my @topics = $q->subtopics('operator');
               my @topics = $q->subtopics('operator', deep => 1);

           Lists the subtopics for a given keyword. If "deep" is given, it includes all
           subtopics; otherwise, only the first level of subtopics is included.
