Description: Re: Perl Module Stripping made me think to post this .. yeah, i realize there's Pod::Stripper -- i must have done a lazy cpan search when i needed to write this and missed it; if nothing else it's a nice quick little Pod::Parser example, and really is basically (though written independently) exactly what Pod::Stripper does (Pod::Stripper inherits from Pod::Parser). I have this installed on my dev server as /usr/local/bin/unpod
unpod cat | unpod

# filter takes a filename as arg (otherwise stdin) and sends pod-strip
+ped content to stdout.

use Pod::Parser;
package MyParser;
use base Pod::Parser;

sub initialize {
  my $self = shift;
sub preprocess_paragraph {
    my ($self, $text, $line_num) = @_;
    print $text if $self->cutting;
    return $text;

package main;

my $parser = new MyParser();
$parser->parse_from_file($ARGV[0], '/dev/null');
