Pod works well, but writing it can be time-consuming and tedious. For
example, commonly used layouts like lists require numerous lines of text to
make just a couple of simple points. An alternative approach is to write
documentation in a wiki-text shorthand (referred to here as _wikidoc_) and
use Pod::WikiDoc to extract it and convert it into its corresponding Pod as
a separate '.pod' file.
Documentation written in wikidoc may be embedded in Pod format blocks, or,
optionally, in specially marked comment blocks. Wikidoc uses simple
text-based markup like wiki websites to indicate formatting and links. (See
the /WIKIDOC MARKUP manpage, below.)
Pod::WikiDoc processes text files (or text strings) by extracting both
existing Pod and wikidoc, converting the wikidoc to Pod, and then writing
the combined document back to a file or standard output.
