Announcing flycheck-pod.el, Flycheck support for Perl 5 POD files

Recently I was writing some Plain Old Documentation (aka POD) for one of my Perl modules, and I thought it would be convenient to have Flycheck support while writing docs.

Since I couldn’t find the Elisp code already written to do this, I whipped something up: flycheck-pod.

As of right now, it supports error checking in Emacs’ various POD and Perl modes using podchecker in the background. I doubt it covers all of the features of POD::Checker though — patches are certainly welcome. See the source code for details.
