I am currently working on my diploma thesis, written in Perl of course ;-). Over time, the project grow and now there's quite a different number of modules and classes. I have a distinct feeling that in half a year, it will be much harder to understand what's going on...
When doing projects in other languages, I'm used to using a tool like Doxygen or JavaDoc to document classes and functions. However, for Perl, I am not aware of such a tool. Of course, there's POD, but it's not quite a match for Doxygen unless combined with some script that collects information from several files.
Is anybody aware of a documentation tool that I might use, or has anybody a homebrewn script that I might extend?
Thanks for your help!
