NAME

       podchecker - check the syntax of POD format documentation files

SYNOPSIS

       podchecker [-help] [-man] [-(no)warnings] [file ...]

OPTIONS AND ARGUMENTS

       -help   Print a brief help message and exit.

       -man    Print the manual page and exit.

       -warnings -nowarnings
               Turn on/off printing of warnings. Repeating -warnings increases the warning level,
               i.e. more warnings are printed. Currently increasing to level two causes flagging
               of unescaped "<,>" characters.

       file    The pathname of a POD file to syntax-check (defaults to standard input).

DESCRIPTION

       podchecker will read the given input files looking for POD syntax errors in the POD
       documentation and will print any errors it find to STDERR. At the end, it will print a
       status message indicating the number of errors found.

       Directories are ignored, an appropriate warning message is printed.

       podchecker invokes the podchecker() function exported by Pod::Checker Please see
       "podchecker()" in Pod::Checker for more details.

RETURN VALUE

       podchecker returns a 0 (zero) exit status if all specified POD files are ok.

ERRORS

       podchecker returns the exit status 1 if at least one of the given POD files has syntax
       errors.

       The status 2 indicates that at least one of the specified files does not contain any POD
       commands.

       Status 1 overrides status 2. If you want unambiguous results, call podchecker with one
       single argument only.
