NAME

       Pod::Simple::Wiki - A class for creating Pod to Wiki filters.

SYNOPSIS

       To create a simple filter to convert from Pod to a wiki format:

           #!/usr/bin/perl

           use strict;
           use warnings;
           use Pod::Simple::Wiki;

           my $parser = Pod::Simple::Wiki->new('kwiki');

           if ( defined $ARGV[0] ) {
               open IN, $ARGV[0] or die "Couldn't open $ARGV[0]: $!\n";
           }
           else {
               *IN = *STDIN;
           }

           if ( defined $ARGV[1] ) {
               open OUT, ">$ARGV[1]" or die "Couldn't open $ARGV[1]: $!\n";
           }
           else {
               *OUT = *STDOUT;
           }

           $parser->output_fh( *OUT );
           $parser->parse_file( *IN );

           __END__

       To convert Pod to a wiki format using the installed "pod2wiki" utility:

           pod2wiki --style mediawiki file.pod > file.wiki

DESCRIPTION

       The "Pod::Simple::Wiki" module is used for converting Pod text to Wiki text.

       Pod (Plain Old Documentation) is a simple markup language used for writing Perl
       documentation.

       A Wiki is a user extensible web site. It uses very simple mark-up that is converted to
       Html. For an introduction to Wikis see: <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wiki>

METHODS

   new('wiki_format')
       The "new" method is used to create a new "Pod::Simple::Wiki" object. It is also used to
       set the output Wiki format.

           my $parser1 = Pod::Simple::Wiki->new( 'wiki' );
           my $parser2 = Pod::Simple::Wiki->new( 'mediawiki' );
           my $parser3 = Pod::Simple::Wiki->new(); # Defaults to 'wiki'

       The currently supported formats are:

           wiki
           kwiki
           usemod
           twiki
           tiddlywiki
           textile
           wikipedia or mediawiki
           markdown
           moinmoin
           confluence

   Other methods
       Pod::Simple::Wiki inherits all of the methods of "Pod::Simple". See Pod::Simple for more
       details.
