POD Reader Finished!

July 1, 2008 at 21:01 | Posted in Perl, Summer of Code | Leave a comment

Lately, I have spent so much energy and time on getting bugs out of existing code, i had to take a break from bug-squishing and try to start something new. I decided to give a try at creating a POD reader for wxCPAN. I didn’t put too much time into it, and am pleasantly surprised with the outcome. I used the HTML POD parser, and the wxHTMLWindow for displaying the output. The biggest challenge was figuring out how to handle the links so we can pass the values to the Search() method. As a caveat, there are two basic versions, a Frame for a dialog, and a Panel, which can be used for embedding into a notebook or anything else. Here is a screenshot of how it is embedded into wxCPAN. It looks a little weird with the two search bars, but it’s intuitive, at least.
