Subject [issues] Updated: (FOR-240) inital document2pod (Perl Plain Old Documentation) needs enhancement
Date Thu, 01 Jan 1970 00:00:00 GMT
The following issue has been updated:

    Updater: Rick Tessner (
       Date: Mon, 16 Aug 2004 11:06 PM
  Added <div> element markers for the podlink and txtlink.  The txtlink is not yet implemented.
 However, it doesn't hurt having the marker and is simply included for future functionality.
  Added handling of the disable-pod-link in a similar manner to the disable-pdf-link, etc
by replacing the <div id='skinconf-podlik'> element placed by the document2html.xsl.
  Preliminary handling of the disable-txt-link, but will not place any links in the transformed
document since the proper XSLs for straight text handling are not there yet.  Again, this
is included for future functionality.
  o Handle quoted paragraphs that are defined by <p class='quote'> elements.
  o Handle <note>, <warning> and <fixme> elements.
  o Handle <dl>, <dd> and <dt> (definition list elements)
  o Handle <code> and <code class='filename'> by transforming to C<> and
    F<> POD code respectively.
  o Better handling of <link>, <jump> and <fork> to POD format links
  o Handle <figure>, <img> and <icon> by including the @alt or @src if
    no @alt attribute defined.
  o Improved <table> handlling.  No longer generates out.of.memory errors
    on nested tables.
  o Nested tables handled by a simple <xsl:value-of ...> for the cell in
    which the nested table appears.
  Added two elements: disable-txt-link and disable-pod-link.
  Decided that since v0.6.3 is not yet part of a Forrest release, it was okay to simply add
to this DTD rather than creating a 0.6.4 DTD.
  NOTE: the disable-txt-link is included simply for future functionality and is not yet functional.
 Just including it so that once the functionality is there, we don't need to create another
DTD to handle it.
  Including the two new elements: disable-pod-link and disable-txt-link.
  Again note that the disable-txt-link is not yet functional and is included to facilitate
the future implementation of it.
  Included new section on "Sample Presentations".  This section gives links to the document
in HTML, PDF, XML, Text (not yet implemented) and POD.
[Attachment] [j240-36481.patch] was added

        Key: FOR-240
    Summary: inital document2pod (Perl Plain Old Documentation) needs enhancement
       Type: Bug

     Status: Unassigned
   Priority: Minor

  Component: Core operations

Enhance the initial document2pod.xsl and sitemap. It currently handles lists, rudimentary
tables, verbatim text. It is rough, but seems to work okay. It doesn't handle definition lists,
notes and warnings (or nested tables, lists in tables, etc).
