I suggest you check out the latest version... run as:
pod2mdoc foo.pm | mandoc
The output is much nicer than pod2man in the same way. Lots more
semantic content as mentioned in the "Smarts" subsection of the manual.
Most visibly, since the SYNOPSIS is now rendered with Nm, Oo/Oc, Ar,
and Fl, mandoc can properly format sections.
I specifically used the SSL manpages and Perl distribution as a basis.
