       This utility will use Pod::Readme to extract a README file from a POD

       It works by extracting and filtering the POD, and then calling the
       appropriate filter program to convert the POD to another format.

       By default, "pod2readme" will back up the output file. To disable this,
       use the "--no-backup" option.

       Specifies the name of the output file. If omitted, it will use the second
       command line argument, or default to the "--target" plus the
       corresponding extension of the "--format".

       For all intents, the default is README.

       If a format other than "text" is chosen, then the appropriate extension
       will be added, e.g. for "markdown", the default output file is README.md.

       The target of the filter, which defaults to "readme".

       The output format, which defaults to "text".

       Other supposed formats are "github", "html", "latex", "man", "markdown",
       "pod", "rtf", and "xhtml". You can also use "gfm" instead of "github".
       Similary you can use "md" for "markdown".

       If enabled, it will output to the console instead of "--output".

       By default, the README will be generated if the source files have been
       changed.  Using "--force" will force the file to be updated.

       Note: POD format files will always be updated.

       Prints the usage and exits.
