#951 accepted defect

verbatim Pod not rendered correctly

Reported by: daxim Owned by: submersible_toaster
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: POD based help Version: 0.88
Keywords: Cc:


Reported by run4flat on IRC.


Here's a normal pod paragraph that is I<supposed> to italicize text in IE<lt>E<gt> tags.

    Here's a verbatim paragraph. I<Italicized text should not be italicized>, but
    should have the I< and > signs.


View with Help->Current Document.

Expected behaviour: Does not treat the formatting codes in the verbatim paragraph.

Actual behaviour: Padre interprets the Pod markup in the verbatim paragraph.

Wow - this is an old bug . I suspect it might need to be reported elsewhere ..

The rendering is done w/ a Wx::HTMLWindow IIRC

The pod is turned to html by something that is not padre code methinks.

  • Owner set to submersible_toaster
  • Status changed from new to accepted
  • Version changed from 0.61 to 0.88

still apparent in .88 ,

bump version and accept for follow up anyway.


a) ditch current POD2HTML and make something better.
b) convince maintainer if Pod::Simple::XHTML to fix?
