podlators 4.09

This package contains the Pod::Man and Pod::Text formatters for Perl.

This is a bug-fix release that fixes a long-standing problem with Pod::Text on EBCDIC systems. The code to handle non-breaking spaces and soft hyphens hard-coded the ASCII code points and deleted the open bracket character on EBCDIC systems.

The fix here adopts the same fix that was done in Pod::Simple (but with backward compatibility to older versions of Pod::Simple).

I also made a bit more progress on modernizing the test suite. All of the Pod::Man tests now use a modern coding style, and most of them have been moved to separate snippets, which makes it easier to look at the intended input and output and to create new tests.

You can get the latest version from the podlators distribution page.
