       pod2usage - print usage messages from embedded pod docs in files


       pod2usage   [-help] [-man] [-exit exitval] [-output outfile] [-verbose level] [-pathlist
                   dirlist] file


       -help   Print a brief help message and exit.

       -man    Print this command's manual page and exit.

       -exit exitval
               The exit status value to return.

       -output outfile
               The output file to print to. If the special names "-" or ">&1" or ">&STDOUT" are
               used then standard output is used. If ">&2" or ">&STDERR" is used then standard
               error is used.

       -verbose level
               The desired level of verbosity to use:

                   1 : print SYNOPSIS only
                   2 : print SYNOPSIS sections and any OPTIONS/ARGUMENTS sections
                   3 : print the entire manpage (similar to running pod2text)

       -pathlist dirlist
               Specifies one or more directories to search for the input file if it was not
               supplied with an absolute path. Each directory path in the given list should be
               separated by a ':' on Unix (';' on MSWin32 and DOS).

       file    The pathname of a file containing pod documentation to be output in usage message
               format (defaults to standard input).


       pod2usage will read the given input file looking for pod documentation and will print the
       corresponding usage message.  If no input file is specified then standard input is read.

       pod2usage invokes the pod2usage() function in the Pod::Usage module. Please see
       "pod2usage()" in Pod::Usage.
