NAME

       Test::Pod - check for POD errors in files

VERSION

       Version 1.51

SYNOPSIS

       "Test::Pod" lets you check the validity of a POD file, and report its results in standard
       "Test::Simple" fashion.

           use Test::Pod tests => $num_tests;
           pod_file_ok( $file, "Valid POD file" );

       Module authors can include the following in a t/pod.t file and have "Test::Pod"
       automatically find and check all POD files in a module distribution:

           use Test::More;
           eval "use Test::Pod 1.00";
           plan skip_all => "Test::Pod 1.00 required for testing POD" if $@;
           all_pod_files_ok();

       You can also specify a list of files to check, using the "all_pod_files()" function
       supplied:

           use strict;
           use Test::More;
           eval "use Test::Pod 1.00";
           plan skip_all => "Test::Pod 1.00 required for testing POD" if $@;
           my @poddirs = qw( blib script );
           all_pod_files_ok( all_pod_files( @poddirs ) );

       Or even (if you're running under Apache::Test):

           use strict;
           use Test::More;
           eval "use Test::Pod 1.00";
           plan skip_all => "Test::Pod 1.00 required for testing POD" if $@;

           my @poddirs = qw( blib script );
           use File::Spec::Functions qw( catdir updir );
           all_pod_files_ok(
               all_pod_files( map { catdir updir, $_ } @poddirs )
           );

DESCRIPTION

       Check POD files for errors or warnings in a test file, using "Pod::Simple" to do the heavy
       lifting.

FUNCTIONS

   pod_file_ok( FILENAME[, TESTNAME ] )
       "pod_file_ok()" will okay the test if the POD parses correctly.  Certain conditions are
       not reported yet, such as a file with no pod in it at all.

       When it fails, "pod_file_ok()" will show any pod checking errors as diagnostics.

       The optional second argument TESTNAME is the name of the test.  If it is omitted,
       "pod_file_ok()" chooses a default test name "POD test for FILENAME".

   all_pod_files_ok( [@entries] )
       Checks all the files under @entries for valid POD. It runs all_pod_files() on directories
       and assumes everything else to be a file to be tested. It calls the "plan()" function for
       you (one test for each file), so you can't have already called "plan".

       If @entries is empty or not passed, the function finds all POD files in files in the blib
       directory if it exists, or the lib directory if not. A POD file is one that ends with a
       Perl extension (.pod, .pl, .pm, .PL, .t), where the first line looks like a Perl shebang,
       or a batch file (.bat) starting with a line containing "--*-Perl-*--".

       If you're testing a module, just make a t/pod.t:

           use Test::More;
           eval "use Test::Pod 1.00";
           plan skip_all => "Test::Pod 1.00 required for testing POD" if $@;
           all_pod_files_ok();

       Returns true if all pod files are ok, or false if any fail.

   all_pod_files( [@dirs] )
       Returns a list of all the Perl files in @dirs and in directories below. If no directories
       are passed, it defaults to blib if blib exists, or else lib if not. Skips any files in
       CVS, .svn, .git and similar directories. See %Test::Pod::ignore_dirs for a list of them.

       A Perl file is:

       ·   Any file that ends in .PL, .pl, .PL, .pm, .pod, or .t.

       ·   Any file that has a first line with a shebang and "perl" on it.

       ·   Any file that ends in .bat and has a first line with "--*-Perl-*--" on it.

       The order of the files returned is machine-dependent.  If you want them sorted, you'll
       have to sort them yourself.
