# Quoting perlpodspec:

# In parsing an L<...> code, Pod parsers must distinguish at least four
# attributes:

############# Not used.  Expressed via the element children plus
#############  the value of the "content-implicit" flag.
# First:
# The link-text. If there is none, this must be undef. (E.g., in "L<Perl
# Functions|perlfunc>", the link-text is "Perl Functions". In
# "L<Time::HiRes>" and even "L<|Time::HiRes>", there is no link text. Note
# that link text may contain formatting.)
# 

############# The element children
# Second:
# The possibly inferred link-text -- i.e., if there was no real link text,
# then this is the text that we'll infer in its place. (E.g., for
# "L<Getopt::Std>", the inferred link text is "Getopt::Std".)
#

############# The "to" attribute (which might be text, or a treelet)
# Third:
# The name or URL, or undef if none. (E.g., in "L<Perl
# Functions|perlfunc>", the name -- also sometimes called the page -- is
# "perlfunc". In "L</CAVEATS>", the name is undef.)
# 

############# The "section" attribute (which might be next, or a treelet)
# Fourth:
# The section (AKA "item" in older perlpods), or undef if none. E.g., in
# Getopt::Std/DESCRIPTION, "DESCRIPTION" is the section. (Note that this
# is not the same as a manpage section like the "5" in "man 5 crontab".
# "Section Foo" in the Pod sense means the part of the text that's
# introduced by the heading or item whose text is "Foo".)
# 
# Pod parsers may also note additional attributes including:
#

############# The "type" attribute.
# Fifth:
# A flag for whether item 3 (if present) is a URL (like
# "http://lists.perl.org" is), in which case there should be no section
# attribute; a Pod name (like "perldoc" and "Getopt::Std" are); or
# possibly a man page name (like "crontab(5)" is).
#

############# The "raw" attribute that is already there.
# Sixth:
# The raw original L<...> content, before text is split on "|", "/", etc,
# and before E<...> codes are expanded.


# For L<...> codes without a "name|" part, only E<...> and Z<> codes may
# occur -- no other formatting codes. That is, authors should not use
# "L<B<Foo::Bar>>".
#
# Note, however, that formatting codes and Z<>'s can occur in any and all
# parts of an L<...> (i.e., in name, section, text, and url).
