NAME

       Test::Pod::Content - Test a Pod's content

SYNOPSIS

        use Test::Pod::Content tests => 3;
        pod_section_is 'Test::Pod::Content' , 'NAME', "Test::Pod::Content - Test a Pod's content", 'NAME section';
        pod_section_like 'Test/Pod/Content.pm', 'SYNOPSIS', qr{ use \s Test::Pod::Content; }xm, 'SYNOPSIS section';
        pod_section_like 'Test/Pod/Content.pm', 'DESCRIPTION', qr{ Test::Pod::Content \s provides \s the }xm, 'DESCRIPTION section';

DESCRIPTION

       This is a very simple module for testing a Pod's content. It is mainly intended for
       testing the content of generated Pod - that is, the Pod included in perl modules generated
       by some mechanism.

       Another usage example is to test whether all files contain the same copyright notice:

        plan tests => scalar @filelist;

        for my $file (sort @filelist) {
           pod_section_like( $file, 'LICENSE AND COPYRIGHT', qr{
               This \s library \s is \s free \s software\. \s
               You \s may \s distribute/modify \s it \s under \s
               the \s same \s terms \s as \s perl \s itself
           }xms, "$file License notice");
        }

       See the files in the t/ directory for live examples.

       Test::Pod::Content has a very simple concept of Pods: To Test::Pod::Content, a Pod is
       separated into section. Each section starts with a =head(1|2|3|4) directive, and ends with
       the next =head, or with the end of the document (=cut).

       This is a very drastic simplification of Pod's document object model, and only allows for
       coarse-grained tests.

       Test::Pod::Content provides the following subroutines for testing a Pod's content:

SUBROUTINES/METHODS

   pod_section_is
         pod_section_is $file, $section, $content, $comment;

       Tests whether a Pod section contains exactly the text given. Most useful for testing the
       NAME section. You probably want to use pod_section_like for all other sections.

       $file may either be a filename (including path) or a module name.  Test::Pod::Content will
       search in @INC for the file/module given.

   pod_section_like
        pod_section_like $file, $section, qr{ use \s Test::Pod::Content\s }xm, $comment;

       Tests whether the text in a Pod section matches the given regex. Be sure to include the m
       / s regex qualifier if you expect your Pod section to span multiple lines.

       $file may either be a filename (including path) or a module name.  Test::Pod::Content will
       search in @INC for the file/module given.

BUGS AND LIMITATIONS

       ·   Performance

           Every call to a pod_section_* method searches for the file in question in @INC and
           parses it from its start. This means that every test requires a Pod parser run, which
           is quite inefficient if you conduct a big number of tests.

       ·   Pod Syntax

           Test::Pod::Coverage may report wrong test results if your pod is not syntactically
           correct. You should use Test::Pod to check your Pod's syntax.

       Pod::Tests, Test::Pod::Snippets and Pod::Snippets for extracting and executing tests from
       a POD (If you plan doing so, here's a little brain-train: Which of the tests in this
       module's "SYNOPSIS" section would fail if you extracted and executed it?).
