  problems in several man pages you maintain         


Author: esr

This is automatically generated email about problems in a man page for which
you appear to be responsible. If you are not the right person or list, tell
me and I will attempt to correct my database.

See http://catb.org/~esr/doclifter/problems.html for details on how and
why these patches were generated. Feel free to email me with any questions.
Note: These patches do not change the mod date of any manual page. You
may wish to do that by hand.

Problems with DBM_Filter::compress.3pm:
(May reflect bugs in POD).

1. Missing or garbled name section. The most common form of garbling
is a missing - or extra -. Or your manual page may have been generated
by a tool that doesn't emit a NAME section as it should. Or your page
may add running text duch as a version or authorship banner. These
problems make it impossible to lift the page to DocBook. They
can also confuse third-party manpage browsers and some implementations
of man -k.

  Introduction / [RFD] translation platform for perl documentation         


Author: Joergen W. Lang
Date: Oct 8, 2006 13:23

Hi everybody,

since this is my first post on this list it's probably a good thing to
introduce myself first.

My name is Joergen Lang. I currently live in Hamburg, Germany. Since
1996 I am programming with Perl. After some contributions to the
german-speaking Perl newsgroups, in 1999 I started working as a
freelance translator for O'Reilly Germany. Since then I have
(co-)translated about 14 books, including the last three Llamas, Perl in
a Nutshell, the Alpaca, mod_perl Pocket Reference, Perl Hacks and a good
few more.

#=======================================================================
# HISTORY
#=======================================================================

Two weeks ago I had the opportunity to attend this year's Euro Foo/OSCON
in Brussels. There I had the chance to discuss the idea of translating
the perl documentation into german and the prequisites for this. During
this it became clear that there already are numerous efforts underway to
do this and that it would be of great help to first "build the workshop
and then start the work".

  perlpod and the L<text|name> syntax         


Author: simon
Date: Sep 7, 2006 06:53

I noticed this in perlpod yesterday:

Or you can link to a web page:

* "L"

Links to an absolute URL. For example,
"L<http://www.perl.org/>". But note that there is no
corresponding "L" syntax, for various reasons.

I've been using L syntax for some time so I suspect that this
last sentence is out of date.

See proposed patch below.

Regards,

Simon Taylor

  Re: Spam on Pod Indexing wiki; Offer of hosting on perl.net.au         


Author: Paul Fenwick
Date: Jul 13, 2006 18:07

G'day Everyone,

With Ivan's blessings, I've moved the POD Indexing Wiki content across
to PerlNet at:

http://perl.net.au/wiki/POD_Indexing_Project

I've converted the format as best I can, although if you spot any
problems please feel free to correct them, it is a wiki after all. I
also want to thank Ivan for his feedback and insights during this
process, as I know he's been extremely busy with his PhD.

I've noticed that in many documents the capitalisation of 'POD' is
somewhat fluid. Am I correct tat 'Pod' is preferred, as it's the most
common form of capitalisation seen in the 'perlpod' documentation.

Ivan's informed me that there should be a link / redirect from the old
Pod Indexing wiki page soon. In the meantime, if anyone has any
questions, please feel free to ask me. If there's anything you spot
that you feel could do with improvement, then be bold and make the
change. You don't need to register an account to edit PerlNet, although
you are encouraged to do so in order to make communication easier.

Cheerio,

Paul
