Subject: Add SEE ALSO section to Clipboard.pm
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 655b
Dear Ryan, the following text in the SYNOPSIS section of Clipboard.pm is differently rendered by various Pod translators. Also see the scripts: clipaccumulate clipbrowse clipedit clipfilter clipjoin Groff keeps the formatting. The mandoc utility, which will replace Groff on OpenBSD, NetBSD and DragonFly BSD soon, currently puts the script names on a single line but doesn't squeeze the leading spaces. The HTML formatter used on the CPAN also puts everything on a single line but squeezes the spaces. To work around the formatting differences I suggest adding a SEE ALSO to the module. A patch is attached. Kind regards, Andreas
