       Pod::Simple::Wiki::Mediawiki - A class for creating Pod to Mediawiki wiki filters.


       This module isn't used directly. Instead it is called via "Pod::Simple::Wiki":

           #!/usr/bin/perl -w

           use strict;
           use Pod::Simple::Wiki;

           my $parser = Pod::Simple::Wiki->new('mediawiki', \%opts);


       Convert Pod to a Mediawiki wiki format using the installed "pod2wiki" utility:

           pod2wiki --style mediawiki file.pod >


       The "Pod::Simple::Wiki::Mediawiki" module is used for converting Pod text to Wiki text.

       Pod (Plain Old Documentation) is a simple markup language used for writing Perl

       For an introduction to Mediawiki see:

       This module isn't generally invoked directly. Instead it is called via
       "Pod::Simple::Wiki". See the Pod::Simple::Wiki and pod2wiki documentation for more


       Pod::Simple::Wiki::Mediawiki inherits all of the methods of "Pod::Simple" and
       "Pod::Simple::Wiki". See Pod::Simple and Pod::Simple::Wiki for more details.

       The following options are supported by the "Pod::Simple::Wiki::Mediawiki" constructor:

           This option accepts a hashref containing the HTML tag to MediaWiki mappings.

           For example, if your MediaWiki installation has the SyntaxHighlight GeSHi
           <> extension installed,
           you could pass the following custom tags to enable your verbatim paragraphs to be
           syntax highlighted:

                   custom_tags => {
                       '<pre>'     => "<syntaxhighlight lang=\"perl\">\n",
                       '</pre>'    => "\n</syntaxhighlight>\n",

           Any custom tags you define will override the classes' default tags as defined in the
           $tags variable.

           Defaults to "{}".

           If enabled, modify the item list output to better support the
           Pod::Elemental::Transformer::List style of lists (as used by many Dist::Zilla based
           distros via Pod::Weaver).

           For example, the output of the following list definition:

               =for :list
               * Point one
               This is pointy
               * Point two
               That hurts

           will be transformed into:

               * Point one<p>This is pointy</p>
               * Point two<p>That hurts</p>

           This will be rendered as a bulleted with list headings that have correctly indented
           paragraph blocks immediately beneath.

           Defaults to 0.

           If set, all links without any extra qualifier text are prefixed with the given URL.  A
           useful URL to set this option to is: "", which will
           enable the links to be correctly resolved to the external links when used within your
           internal MediaWiki site.

           Defaults to 0.

           This option will modify any "=head1" header by lower-casing it and then upper-casing
           the first character.

           For example, this header:

               =head1 DESCRIPTION


               =head1 Description

           This option is inspired from
           <> in the
           Wikipedia "Manual of Style".

           Defaults to 0.

           If enabled, modify the resultant wiki output text to remove the "NAME" (or "Name")
           section, but first parse out the embedded abstract text and place that at the top of
           the wiki page, as a brief introduction.

           Defaults to 0.


       This module also installs a "pod2wiki" command line utility. See "pod2wiki --help" for


       Thanks Tony Sidaway for initial Wikipedia/MediaWiki support. Christopher J. Madsen for
       several major additions and tests. Peter Hallam added several MediaWiki enhancements.
