[ID 19991208.002] Matching quotes in POD2MAN
Message ID:

This is a bug report for perl from swartik@fricka,
generated with the help of perlbug 1.20 running under perl 5.00404.

On line 873 of pod2man, there is a comment that reads:

	    # if you know how to get ":s please do

Is the problem caused by the lack of a colon in second parenthesized
expression of the regular expression on line 951?  Or should I ask,
why doesn't that RE have a colon?  I inserted one and pod2man translated
":s correctly.  Of course, troff being what it is, there may be a good
reason why the colon was omitted...
