Documentation aid similar to JavaDoc

I am sure I have seen something like JavaDoc for perl. I looked on SourceForge and there is a perldoc project but it is inactive and has no files.

Does anyone know of a tool that will give me the ability to document my perl classes in a similar way as JavaDoc does?

I'm not that familar with Javadoc, but I'm pretty sure it's similar to POD (Plain Old Documentation).

Type in:

perldoc perlpod

To read more details

or see http://www.perldoc.com/perl5.8.0/pod/perlpod.html

I have seen POD, the advantage of JavaDoc is that it creates a set of web pages with frame navigation to drill down all of the class methods. I have also seen a version for PHP called PhpDoc. I was hoping for something similar for Perl.

You can convert POD into a number of different formats, eg: HTML, PS etc.  However, I'm not aware of any tool that allows frame navigation apart from the Perl documentation set that comes with ActiveState Perl.

there seems to be no answer to this question so I have implemented a manual documentation aid directly in HTML.

Nothing has happened on this question in over 7 months. It's time for cleanup!

My recommendation, which I will post in the Cleanup topic area, is to
PAQ, refund points (asker provided their own solution, of sorts, but responses may be considered useful).

Please post any comments here within the next seven days.
