       Pod::Text::Termcap - Convert POD data to ASCII text with format escapes


           use Pod::Text::Termcap;
           my $parser = Pod::Text::Termcap->new (sentence => 0, width => 78);

           # Read POD from STDIN and write to STDOUT.

           # Read POD from file.pod and write to file.txt.
           $parser->parse_from_file ('file.pod', 'file.txt');


       Pod::Text::Termcap is a simple subclass of Pod::Text that highlights output text using the
       correct termcap escape sequences for the current terminal.  Apart from the format codes,
       it in all ways functions like Pod::Text.  See Pod::Text for details and available options.


       This module sets the TERMPATH environment variable globally to:


       if it isn't already set.  (The first entry is omitted if the HOME environment variable
       isn't set.)  This is a (very old) workaround for problems finding termcap information on
       older versions of Solaris, and is not good module behavior.  Please do not rely on this
       behavior; it may be dropped in a future release.


       This module uses Term::Cap to retrieve the formatting escape sequences for the current
       terminal, and falls back on the ECMA-48 (the same in this regard as ANSI X3.64 and ISO
       6429, the escape codes also used by DEC VT100 terminals) if the bold, underline, and reset
       codes aren't set in the termcap information.

       The current version of this module is always available from its web site at
       <>.  It is also part of the Perl core
       distribution as of 5.6.0.
