PPI::Token::Pod - Sections of POD in Perl documents

isa PPI::Token
    isa PPI::Element

A single "PPI::Token::Pod" object represents a complete section of POD documentation within a Perl document.

This class provides some additional methods beyond those provided by its PPI::Token and PPI::Element parent classes.

The "merge" constructor takes a number of "PPI::Token::Pod" objects, and returns a new object that represents one combined POD block with the content of all of them.

Returns a new "PPI::Token::Pod" object, or "undef" on error.

The "lines" method takes the string of POD and breaks it into lines, returning them as a list.

See the support section in the main module.
