CGI::Wiki::Formatter::Pod - A Pod to HTML formatter for CGI::Wiki.


A Pod to HTML formatter backend for CGI::Wiki.


  my $store     = CGI::Wiki::Store::SQLite->new( ... );
  my $formatter = CGI::Wiki::Formatter::Pod->new;
  my $wiki      = CGI::Wiki->new( store     => $store,
                                  formatter => $formatter );

Go look at CGI::Wiki to find out more. This module is distributed separately solely for convenience of testing and maintenance; it's probably not too useful on its own.


  my $formatter = CGI::Wiki::Formatter::Pod->new(
                       node_prefix           => 'wiki.cgi?node=',
                       usemod_extended_links => 0,

node_prefix is optional and defaults to the value shown above.

If usemod_extended_links is supplied and true, then UseModWiki-style extended links [[like this]] will be supported - ie

  [[foo bar]]

will be translated into a link to the node named "Foo Bar". (Node names are forced to ucfirst, ie first letter of each word is capitalised.)

Note: You must have CGI::Wiki::Formatter::UseMod installed if you wish to use the usemod_extended_links parameter.

  my $html = $formatter->format( $content );

Uses Pod::Tree::HTML to translate the pod supplied in $content into HTML. Links will be treated as links to other wiki pages.


CGI::Wiki, Pod::Tree::HTML.
