=head1 NAME

Pod::Hyperlink::BounceURL - Allow off-page links in POD to point to a URL


	use Pod::Hyperlink::BounceURL;
	my $linkparser = new Pod::Hyperlink::BounceURL;
	$linkparser->configure( URL => '/cgi-perl/support/' );
	my $pod2xhtml = new Pod::Xhtml( LinkParser => $linkparser );


Some links in your pod may not be resolveable by Pod::Hyperlink, e.g. C<LE<lt>Some::ModuleE<gt>> -
this module allows you to detect such links and generate a hyperlink instead of some static text.
The target URL will probably be some kind of dynamic webpage or CGI application which can then serve up
the relevant page or send a redirect to the page, hence the "bounce" in this module's name.

This module overrides the type() method and, for relevant links, will return a string which is
"bounceurl:" followed by the URL, instead of returning "page" or "item".
Your pod-conversion module can then switch on this case and emit the correct kind of markup.
L<Pod::Xhtml> supports the use of this module.

=head1 METHODS

=over 4

=item configure( %OPTIONS )

Set persistent configuration for this object. See L</OPTIONS>.

=item type()

Behaves as L<Pod::Hyperlink>'s type() method except for the unresolveable links, where the string returned is
as described in L</DESCRIPTION>.


=head1 OPTIONS

=item URL

The URL to handle the link, which may be absolute or relative, of any protocol - it's just
treated as a string and is passed through sprintf(), with two string arguments that are both
already URL-escaped.

The first argument is the page name, and will always exist. The second argument is the "node" within the page, and may be

Insert '%s' where you wish the arguments to be interpolated. The string goes through sprintf() so
you should have '%%' where you want an actual percent sign. If you need the arguments in a different order, see
the perl-specific features of L<perlfunc/sprintf>.
