The default value is false -- i.e., complaints do not go to STDERR. =item C<< $parser->bare_output( I ) >> Some formatter subclasses use this as a flag for whether output should have prologue and epilogue code omitted. For example, setting this to true for an HTML formatter class should omit the "......" prologue and the "" epilogue. If you want to set this to true, you should probably also set C or at least C to true. =item C<< $parser->preserve_whitespace( I ) >> If you set this attribute to a true value, the parser will try to preserve whitespace in the output. This means that such formatting conventions as two spaces after periods will be preserved by the parser. This is primarily useful for output formats that treat whitespace as significant (such as text or *roff, but not HTML). =back =head1 SEE ALSO L -- event-based Pod-parsing framework L -- like Pod::Simple, but each sort of event calls its own method (like C) L -- a Pod-parsing framework like Pod::Simple, but with a token-stream interface L -- a Pod-parsing framework like Pod::Simple, but with a tree interface L -- a simple Pod::Simple subclass that reads documents, and then makes a plaintext report of any errors found in the document L -- for dumping Pod documents as tidily indented XML, showing each event on its own line L -- dumps a Pod document as XML (without introducing extra whitespace as Pod::Simple::DumpAsXML does).
