Pod::Simple::Checker -- check the Pod syntax of a document

  perl -MPod::Simple::Checker -e \
   "exit Pod::Simple::Checker->filter(shift)->any_errata_seen" \

This class is for checking the syntactic validity of Pod. It works by basically acting like a simple-minded version of Pod::Simple::Text that formats only the "Pod Errors" section (if Pod::Simple even generates one for the given document).

This is a subclass of Pod::Simple and inherits all its methods.
