       pod2texi	- convert Pod to Texinfo

	 pod2texi [OPTION]... POD...

       Translate Pod file(s) to	Texinfo.  There	are two	basic modes of
       operation.  First, by default, each pod is translated to	a standalone
       Texinfo manual.

       Second, if "--base-level" is set	higher than 0, each pod	is translated
       to a file suitable for @include,	and one	more file with all the
       @includes is generated, intended	to be @included	in turn	within a hand-
       written top-level file.

	   Use appendix	sectioning commands (@appendix,	...) instead of	the
	   default numbered sectioning Texinfo @-commands (@chapter, @section,

	   Sets	the level of the "head1" commands.  It may be an integer or a
	   Texinfo sectioning command (without the "@"): 1 corresponds to the
	   @chapter/@unnumbered	level, 2 to the	@section level,	and so on.
	   The default is 0, meaning that "head1" commands are still output as
	   chapters, but the output is arranged	as a standalone	manual.

	   If the level	is not 0, the pod file is rendered as a	fragment of a
	   Texinfo manual suitable for @include.  In this case,	each pod file
	   has an additional sectioning	command	covering the entire file, one
	   level above the "--base-level" value.  Therefore, to	make each pod
	   file	a chapter in a large manual, you should	use "section" as the
	   base	level.

	   For an example of making Texinfo out	of the Perl documentation
	   itself, see "contrib/perldoc-all" in	the Texinfo source
	   distribution, with output available at

	   Set debugging level to NUM.

	   Display help	and exit.

	   Name	for the	first manual, or the main manual if there is a main
	   manual.  Default is to write	to standard output.

	   Use anchors for sections instead of nodes.

	   Do not fill sectioning gaps with empty @unnumbered files.
	   Ordinarily, it's good to keep the sectioning	hierarchy intact.

	   Insert STR as top boilerplate before	includes.  The default is a
	   minimal beginning for a Texinfo document, and sets
	   @documentencoding to	"utf-8"	(because the output is written that

	   If there is a main manual with include files	(each corresponding to
	   an input pod	file), then those include files	are put	in directory

	   Use unnumbered sectioning commands (@unnumbered, ...) instead of
	   the default numbered	sectioning Texinfo @-commands (@chapter,
	   @section, ...).

	   Name	of the @top element for	the main manual.  May contain Texinfo

	   Display version information and exit.
