Pod::Simple::XMLOutStream -- turn Pod into XML
perl -MPod::Simple::XMLOutStream -e \ "exit Pod::Simple::XMLOutStream->filter(shift)->any_errata_seen" \ thingy.pod
Pod::Simple::XMLOutStream is a subclass of Pod::Simple that parses Pod and turns it into XML. Pod::Simple::XMLOutStream inherits methods from Pod::Simple.
Pod::Simple::DumpAsXML is rather like this class; see its documentation for a discussion of the differences. Pod::Simple, Pod::Simple::DumpAsXML, Pod::SAX Pod::Simple::Subclassing The older (and possibly obsolete) libraries Pod::PXML, Pod::XML
ABOUT EXTENDING POD
TODO: An example or two of =extend, then point to Pod::Simple::Subclassing
If you actually want to use Pod as a format that you want to render to XML (particularly if to an XML instance with more elements than normal Pod has), please email me ("firstname.lastname@example.org") and I'll probably have some recommendations. For reasons of concision and energetic laziness, some methods and options in this module (and the dozen modules it depends on) are undocumented; but one of those undocumented bits might be just what you're looking for.
