Perl Advent Calendar 2008-12-00

Getting Started

by David Westbrook

This is a basic POD example for using Pod::Advent to generate a http://perladvent.pm.org entry such as this. Once the POD is written or updated, simply execute the pod2advent script and save the output:

$ pod2advent getting_started.pod > pod2advent getting_started.html

And we get the file that you are now reading. The POD source is included below (normally this would be your .pl script file):

getting_started.pod
