Re: impact of compiling pod doc
Message ID:
Thank you for answer JJ.

It is quite a work to split such a large file up so I thought I'd better 
ask before I dive in head first. Later I might think it over. I have 
this documentation on the github pages too so I could separate the pod 
doc and keep them somewhere else where they won't get processed and 

Thanks again,
