Extract the Synopsis of a Module
When I begin to work with a module, most of the time what I do is to look at its pod, and copy the code in the synopsis that I'll use as a a baseline.
Open pod, copy, paste. That's a lot of exhauting work... While I'm pretty
sure there's already a better tool to do it somewhere in CPAN,
here's my little
podsyn script that does all the hard work for me:
Its use on the command line is straigt-forward:
$ ./files/podsyn.pl Pod::XML use Pod::XML; my $parser = Pod::XML->new(); $parser->parse_from_file("foo.pod");
And crafting a vim command to do the same shouldn't be too hard either (I'll try to post one as soon as my vim-fu comes back to me).
