                   1 : print SYNOPSIS only
                   2 : print SYNOPSIS sections and any OPTIONS/ARGUMENTS sections
                   3 : print the entire manpage (similar to running pod2text)

       -pathlist dirlist
               Specifies one or more directories to search for the input file if it was not supplied with an absolute
               path. Each directory path in the given list should be separated by a ':' on Unix (';' on MSWin32 and

       file    The pathname of a file containing pod documentation to be output in usage mesage format (defaults to
               standard input).

       pod2usage will read the given input file looking for pod documentation and will print the corresponding usage
       message.  If no input file is specifed than standard input is read.

       pod2usage invokes the pod2usage() function in the Pod::Usage module. Please see "pod2usage()" in Pod::Usage.
