Enter the XPathScript manual

August 15, 2006
xml::xpathscript manual xml::libxml pod::parser yaml::loader

As XPathScript is growing to be a pretty beefy module, I wanted to collect all its manpages into a manual. So I did the obvious: I wrote a script that...

...uses Pod::Parser to extract the pod from the distribution...

(and YAML::Loader to get a few infos from META.yaml),

...passed it through Pod::DocBook to get a DocBook representation of the document,...

...massaged it with XML::LibXML...

...used XPathScript to convert the result into LaTeX...

...which finally can be compiled into PDF (*pant* *pant* *pant*).

The result doesn't look too bad, I am tempted to say.
