I've recently starting trying to use POD for documenting more.  I love RCS so combining the two not only made sense but I found they compliment each other nicely.  I like that you can generate a man page or HTML from POD and you can use RCS variables to fill out part of the POD.  Here's my new file slurping template incorporating RCS and POD.

#!/usr/local/bin/perl -w


=head1 NAME 


=head1 VERSION







$in = shift;
open(IN,"<$in") or die "Cannot open $in: $!\n";
 # meow
 print $_;

Inspired by the new iPad ...

Okay, I can't take credit for it.  The Onion had this great story about the amazing power of the iPad.  That made me think - I wonder if you can could now use Perl on the new iPad from Apple.  I'm still not sure.  But, you can read several of your favorite books on the new Apple iPad.  I couldn't really find anyone scripting Perl on the new Apple iPad so not much more to say except to quote The Onion "new iPad, new iPad, new iPad, new iPad, new iPad, new iPad, new iPad, new iPad, new iPad, new iPad."
