  Changed paths:

    M pod/perlsub.pod

  Log Message:


  pod/perlsub.pod -  Make three links working after pod2html conversion

A space after the separator between text and name as in L<< text | name >>

is retained in the href element created by pod2html: href="base/ name".

Three of these occur in perlsub.pod, the links are broken in the

perlsub presentations on metacpan, and github.

This patch removes a set of such spaces.

I guess this could also (or instead) be fixed in pod2html and maybe

other POD converters by making them eliminate leading spaces after

the separator?

Committer: add 2nd email address for submitter. Keep porting tests happy.
