       pod2usage - print usage messages from embedded pod docs in files

       pod2usage   [-help] [-man] [-exit exitval] [-output outfile] [-verbose
		   level] [-pathlist dirlist] file

       -help   Print a brief help message and exit.

       -man    Print this commands manual page and exit.

       -exit exitval
	       The exit status value to return.

       -output outfile
	       The output file to print to. If the special names "-" or ">&1"
	       or ">&STDOUT" are used then standard output is used. If ">&2"
	       or ">&STDERR" is used then standard error is used.

       -verbose level
	       The desired level of verbosity to use:

		   1 : print SYNOPSIS only
		   2 : print SYNOPSIS sections and any OPTIONS/ARGUMENTS sections
		   3 : print the entire manpage (similar to running pod2text)

       -pathlist dirlist
	       Specifies one or more directories to search for the input file
	       if it was not supplied with an absolute path. Each directory
	       path in the given list should be separated by a : on Unix
	       (; on MSWin32 and DOS).

       file    The pathname of a file containing pod documentation to be out
	       put in usage mesage format (defaults to standard input).

       pod2usage will read the given input file looking for pod documentation
       and will print the corresponding usage message.	If no input file is
       specifed than standard input is read.

       pod2usage invokes the pod2usage() function in the Pod::Usage module.
       Please see "pod2usage()" in Pod::Usage.

       Pod::Usage, pod2text(1)
