Pod::CYOA - Pod-based Choose Your Own Adventure website generator (?!)


version 0.003


Pod::CYOA is a simple pair of libraries, Pod::CYOA::Transformer and Pod::CYOA::XHTML, used to generate Choose Your Own Adventure stories in Pod. It is not a robust, highly-extensible system, but it made available on CPAN to make it easy to build the Dist::Zilla tutorial, which is written in Pod as a CYOA "story."

The Dist::Zilla tutorial itself includes a complete sample program showing how Pod::CYOA is used to build the tutorial. The site source code is also a useful place to look at how to use Pod::CYOA.


Pod::CYOA makes no promises, other than that its latest version should work to build the latest version of the Dist::Zilla tutorial. It may grow more stable over time if others are interested in using it. Until that changes (and, thus, this warning changes), you should be careful when upgrading Pod::CYOA, if you have your own CYOA document sets.


This module should work on any version of perl still receiving updates from the Perl 5 Porters. This means it should work on any version of perl released in the last two to three years. (That is, if the most recently released version is v5.40, then this module should work on both v5.40 and v5.38.)

Although it may work on older versions of perl, no guarantee is made that the minimum required version will not be increased. The version may be increased for any reason, and there is no promise that patches will be accepted to lower the minimum required perl.
