A POD file may also be a text file used for documenting source code written in the Perl programming language. It contains text written in the Plain Old Documentation (POD) markup language that can be easily parsed and read in source code format or converted to a manual page in another format, such as .TEX or .HTML. POD files store only the POD language, but other files, including Perl Script (.PL) and Perl Module (.PM) files, may also store POD language with Perl code.

More Information

Programmers developed the POD language to assist them in documenting publicly released Perl modules and for the Perl help manual, also called the Perl manpages, for end users. The lightweight markup language includes a basic syntax and is designed to be easy to parse, read, write in, convert, and incorporate other code snippets.

The POD language includes various tags to markup text, including the following:

  • =head1 - Title
  • =head2 - Subtitle
  • =over - Text indentation
  • =item - Bullet points
  • L<example_link> - Hyperlink insertion

How to open a POD file

You can open POD files with Perl and perldoc. Since POD files are saved in plain text, you can also open them with any text editor, including Microsoft Notepad (Windows) and Apple TextEdit (macOS).
