Pod::Index::Entry - Represents Pod search result
use Pod::Index::Entry; my $entry = Pod::Index::Entry->new( keyword => 'constructors', podname => 'perlobj', line => 42, filename => '/usr/lib/perl5/5.8.7/pod/perlobj.pod', context => 'Using POD', ); # trivial accessors my $podname = $entry->podname; my $filename = $entry->filename; my $line = $entry->line; my $context = $entry->context; my $keyword = $entry->keyword; # extract the POD for this entry my $pod = $entry->pod;
This class represents a POD index entry. An entry is defined by the podname/filename, line number, and context. The entry object also has the ability to extract the POD "scope" from the filename.
new my $q = Pod::Index::Entry->new(%args); Create a new search object. Possible arguments are: podname The name of the pod, such as . filename The filename for the pod, such as Data/Dumper.pm. line The line number where the scope of this entry begins. context The title of the section that contains this entry. podname filename line context These are just simple accessors that return the value of these properties, as given to the constructor. pod Extracts the POD for the scope of the entry from $self->filename, beginning at $self->line. For a definition of scope, see Pod::Index. The POD extraction is delegated to the Pod::Index::Extract module.
