Subject a problem with internal linking functionality
Date Thu, 24 Jan 2002 18:41:20 GMT
There is one last big things I need to do before we can start wrapping 
up. It's the internal linking (talking about L<>). This is a very 
complicated problem and I still didn't figure out how to do this in the 
best way. Remember that each doc should be able to link to another doc 
potentially located in a completely different directory. Currently I'm 
thinking that each doc must use something like this 
which is a hell to type, but makes things so easy from the maintenance 
point of view. If we don't use a full path, it's possible that two docs 
have the same end file name, so doing a search in the file tree may be 
not an option :(

Also have to decide what to do about the new layout I started to use:


instead of just


This is done so you can put images and other static objects and code 
related to this specific document without messing up with other 
documents. But that also means that we need to do something like:
L<Apache::Test framework|docs::2.0::devel::testing::testing/"whatever">

see the duplication? I guess I could resolve it in the code, but what if 
later we decide that there could be another doc residing in the same dir 
with testing.pod :9

So I'm still thinking and if you have ideas on how to approach this 
problem easier please tell me.
