Pod::Strip - Remove POD from Perl code

=head1 VERSION

version 1.100


    use Pod::Strip;

    my $p=Pod::Strip->new;              # create parser
    my $podless;                        # set output string
    $p->output_string(\$podless);       # see Pod::Simple
    $p->parse_string_document($code);   # or some other parsing method
                                        #    from Pod::Simple
    # $podless will now contain code without any POD


Pod::Strip is a subclass of Pod::Simple that strips all POD from Perl Code.

=head1 METHODS

All methods besides those listed here are inherited from Pod::Simple

=head2 new

Generate a new parser object.

=head2 replace_with_comments

Call this method with a true argument to replace POD with comments (looking like "# stripped POD") instead of stripping it.

This has the effect that line numbers get reported correctly in error
messages etc.
