Summary: Extracts POD documentation and shows usage information
*pod2usage* will print a usage message for the invoking script (using its
embedded pod documentation) and then exit the script with the desired exit
status. The usage message printed may have any one of three levels of
"verboseness": If the verbose level is 0, then only a synopsis is printed.
If the verbose level is 1, then the synopsis is printed along with a
description (if present) of the command line options and arguments. If the
verbose level is 2, then the entire manual page is printed.

    - CPAN#115847: pod2usage exits with error when using "-verbose 3" with STDIN
      Addressed in pod2usage script, and updated POD
    - CPAN#122941: Pod::Usage::pod2usage() problem with $Config{scriptdir}
      Should be fixed by 1.69 already; reviewed code
    - CPAN#121489: I<> not emphasized when used with Pod::Text::Termcap
      Added specific support of ::Termcap
    - CPAN#114697: Sample code syntax error in documentation for Pod-Usage
      Fixed. Well spotted!
    - CPAN#125337: Typo in pod

    - CPAN#130418: Fix parent directory in pod2usage auxiliary script
      Patch accepted, thanks!
    - CPAN#131845: $Config{pager} string can have arguments

      string form, and escape/quote the file path to protect any metacharacters
      in the file path
    - CPAN#131844: preferring PAGER to $Config{pager}
      Fixed with the above CPAN#131845

    - CPAN#111313: Makefile creation issue with Pod-Usage-1.68
      thanks to H M Brand for the suggestion on how to create a more portable
      tar.gz distribution file
    - CPAN#109830: Tests fail
      bundle some old Pod::Parser modules in the test so that there is no more
      dependency. This has to refactored one day to entirely get rid of that
* Mon May 23 2016
  - updated to 1.68

    - CPAN#102529: License declaration mismatch
      unified the license for Pod-Usage to "as Perl itself", and corrected authors
    - CPAN#109830: Tests fail
      added prerequisite for Pod::Text 4.00 to avoid running tests with outdated

      added missing '-'
    - CPAN#110446: [feature request] -perldocopt for supplying perldoc options

      should do the job
* Wed Apr 15 2015
  - updated to 1.67
    see /usr/share/doc/packages/perl-Pod-Usage/CHANGES
    1.67 (marekr)
    - added options -perlcmd and -perldoc to allow for non-standard installations
      of perl and the perldoc script. Thanks to Markus Jansen for the patch
    1.66 (marekr)
    - CPAN#102116: pod2usage() -sections omits section with subsection specified
      added more precise documentation about the -section syntax and semantics

      added documentation to describe what formatting changes pod2usage applies
    - CPAN#102101: New tests fail when in core

      the patch, applied in slightly modified way
    1.65 (marekr)
    - CPAN#81059: [RT #115534]: Pod::Usage Failes to Select -sections with Negation
      fixed a specific corner case for section selection
    - CPAN#101538: Pod::Usage doesn't handle E<copy> correctly
      introduced a utf8 option; this may actually not solve the problem, but
      it is the best we can do for the moment
    - CPAN#101581: pod2usage() -sections omits marked-up text from =head lines
      make sure that marked-up text is not skipped
* Wed Sep 17 2014
  - updated to 1.64
    - CPAN#93170: Abstract in pod doesn't follow convention
      fixed the NAME section
    - CPAN#86932: documentation does not work with use strict
      rewritten parts of the DESCRIPTION section
    - CPAN#86776: "pod2usage -verbose 2 FILE" is broken when perldoc is missing
      verified that pod2usage acts decently if perldoc is missing
      note: a Perl installation without perldoc is like a haunted house
      without ghosts
    1.63 (marekr)
    - CPAN#85477: Module version not updated in last release
    - CPAN#85478: typo fixes
    1.62 (marekr)
    Patches provided by rjbs - many thanks!
    - These commits update Pod::Usage to only use Pod::Simple, so that any
    reliance on Pod::Parser is removed, making it easier to remove Pod::Parser
    from core.
    - [PATCH 1/4] update Makefile: strict, INSTALLDIR, 5.6
    - [PATCH 2/4] we will start to require perl 5.6 from here on out
    - [PATCH 3/4] always use Pod::Text as default base class
    - [PATCH 4/4] eliminate the branch in which Pod::Parser would be used
    This commit is intended entirely to free Pod::Usage from any reliance on
    * now defaults to using Pod::Text, rather than checking $] to pick.
    * $Pod::Select::MAX_HEADING_LEVEL is replaced with a local var
    * &Pod::Select::_compile_section_spec is copied into this module
      This isn't the most elegant fix, but it's a bit of a ball of mud. The code
      is written to let you alter @ISA at runtime to something that is derived
      either from Pod::Parser or Pod::Simple. This should probably be more
      explicitly limited to Pod::Simple in future releases.
* Sat May 11 2013
  - fix build on old distributions by renaming the binaries for now
* Wed May 08 2013
  - initial package 1.61
