Pod::Simple::DumpAsXML is a subclass of the Pod::Simple manpage that parses Pod and turns it into indented and wrapped XML. This class is of interest to people writing Pod formatters based on Pod::Simple.

Pod::Simple::DumpAsXML inherits methods from the Pod::Simple manpage.


the Pod::Simple::XMLOutStream manpage is rather like this class. Pod::Simple::XMLOutStream's output is space-padded in a way that's better for sending to an XML processor (that is, it has no ignoreable whitespace). But Pod::Simple::DumpAsXML's output is much more human-readable, being (more-or-less) one token per line, with line-wrapping.

the Pod::Simple::DumpAsText manpage is rather like this class, except that it doesn't dump with XML syntax. Try them and see which one you like best!
