NAME

       Pod::Weaver::Plugin::EnsureUniqueSections - Ensure that POD has no duplicate section
       headers.

VERSION

       version 0.163250

SYNOPSIS

       In weaver.ini

           [-EnsureUniqueSections]
           strict = 0 ; The default

DESCRIPTION

       This plugin simply ensures that the POD after weaving has no duplicate top-level section
       headers. This can help you if you are converting from writing all your own POD to
       generating it with Pod::Weaver. If you begin generating a section with Pod::Weaver but you
       forget to delete the manually written section of the same name, this plugin will warn you.

       By default, this module does some tricks to detect similar headers, such as "AUTHOR" and
       "AUTHORS". You can turn this off by setting "strict = 1" in weaver.ini, in which case only
       exactly identical headers will be considered duplicates of each other.

   DIAGNOSTIC MESSAGES
       If any similar (or identical if "strict" is 1) section headers are found, all of their
       names will be listed on STDERR. Generally, you should take this list of modules and remove
       each from your POD. Then you should ensure that the sections generated by Pod::Weaver are
       suitable substitutes for those sections. In the case of similar names, only the first
       instance in each set of similar names will be listed.

ATTRIBUTES

   strict
       If set to true (1), section headers will only be considered duplicates if they match
       exactly. If false (the default), certain similar section headers will be considered
       equivalent. The following similarities are considered (more may be added later):

       All whitespace and punctuation are equivalant
           For example, the following would all be considered duplicates of each other: " SEE
           ALSO", "SEE ALSO", "SEE,ALSO:".

       Case-insensitive
           For example, "Name" and "NAME" would be considered duplicates.

       Sets of words separated by "AND".
           For example, "COPYRIGHT AND LICENSE" would be considered a duplicate of "LICENSE AND
           COPYRIGHT".

       Plurals
           A plural noun is considered equivalent to its singular. For example, "AUTHOR" and
           "AUTHORS" are the same section. A section header consisting of multiple words, such as
           "DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTY", is not affected by this rule.

           This rule uses Lingua::EN::Inflect::Number to interconvert between singular and plural
           forms. Hopefully you don't need to make a section called "OCTOPI".

       Note that these rules apply recursively, so "Authors; and Contributors" would be a
       duplicate of " CONTRIBUTORS AND AUTHOR".

METHODS

   prepare_input
       This method modifies the weaver object by moving EnsureUniqueSections to the end of the
       weaver's plugin list to ensure that it gets to look at the final woven POD.

       THIS IS PURE EVIL. This is a hack to ensure that this plugin gets "the last word".
       Obviously if all plugins used this it would be total chaos. I welcome alternative
       suggestions. The main issue is that when other Finalizers, such as Section::Leftovers
       (which happens to be the most likely plugin to create duplicate sections), produce
       sections, this plugin will only see those sections if it runs after those Finalizers.
       Hence the need to be the last plugin on the list.

   finalize_document
       This method checks the document for duplicate headers, and throws an error if any are
       found. If no duplicates are found, it simply does nothing. It does not modify the POD in
       any way.

BUGS AND LIMITATIONS

   Should also be available as a Dist::Zilla testing plugin
       I would like to convert this to a Dist::Zilla testing plugin, so that you can use it
       without enabling Pod::Weaver if you don't want to, but I haven't yet figured out how to
       find all files in a dist with POD and extract all their headers. If anyone knows, please
       tell me.

   No recursive duplicate checks
       This module only checks for duplicates in top-level headers (i.e.  "head1"). It could be
       extended to check the "head2" elements within each "head1" section and so on, but
       generally Pod::Weaver is not called upon to generate subsections, so you are unlikely to
       end up with duplicates at any level other than the first. However, if there is demand for
       recursive duplicate detection, I will add it.

       Please report any bugs or feature requests to "rct+perlbug@thompsonclan.org".
