19.6 Invoking pod2texi: Convert Pod to Texinfo

The pod2texi program translates Perl Pod documentation file(s) to Texinfo. There are two basic modes of operation: generating a standalone manual from each input Pod, or (if --base-level=1 or higher is given) generating Texinfo subfiles suitable for use with @include.

The pod2texi program may be useful outside of the rest of Texinfo; thus, the invocation of pod2texi is documented in the Pod language using the man page format to follow the convention used in Perl standalone programs, with a version on the web http://www.gnu.org/software/texinfo/manual/pod2texi.html and a version included below. The version included in the manual is also an example of pod2texi use, as it is converted from Pod using pod2texi.
