Extracts embedded tests and code examples from POD
This is a specialized POD viewer to extract embedded tests and code examples from POD. It doesn’t do much more than that. pod2test does the useful work.
After creating a PodTests object, you parse the POD by calling one of the available parsing methods documented below. You can call parse as many times as you’d like, all examples and tests found will stack up inside the object.
Once extracted, the tests can be built into stand-alone testing code using the build_tests and build_examples methods. However, it is recommended that you first look at the pod2test program before embarking on this.
