Re: [PATCH] .dev files.
Message ID:
That's a good point.  Perhaps the .dev file are superfluous.
If that is the case then all we need to do is change the .c file
header to contain the POD comments and then
intersperse POD in the code as Andy did.  Then
we can eliminate the .dev files and replace them with
a utility that will allow viewing of only the POD information.
