What is ShuX?
ShuX is a Cocoa-based Mac OS X update to the MacPerl Shuck tool.
Naturally, if you've never used MacPerl or Shuck, that's not
extraordinarily helpful to know. :-)
ShuX (and Shuck) is a POD reader. POD is Perl's "plain old
documentation" format. All of the documentation that ships with Perl -
and there is a LOT of it - is delivered in POD format. The docs for a
module are written in POD format, and embedded within the module's .pm
What's new in beta2?
Two major crashing bugs have been fixed:
Running ShuX from a location with a space in the path name no longer
causes a crash.
Adding a DocSet by running a perl to get its configuration info
longer cause a crash if the target perl hasn't been configured with
of the requested paths.
A number of things have been added and/or changed:
An "Introduction to ShuX" document is displayed at startup by
An interface to type a full or partial POD name to select it in the
browser has been added.
The interface for selecting a perl to use when adding a new DocSet
has been overhauled.
Several new options have been added to the Preferences panel.
The menus have been cleaned up, with several menu items that aren't
relevant to a read-only document viewer removed.
Some minor display glitches have been corrected.
What new additions are planned for the beta3 release?
A "shux" command-line tool, written and contributed by Alex
Active hyperlinks in document windows.
A "history" function in the Browser window.
An "Open POD" item in the Services menu.
