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

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.

My recommendation, which I will post in the Cleanup topic area, is to
