dbdToHtml needs better error messages

Bug #1918275 reported by Dirk Zimoch
This bug affects 1 person
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

The pod parser dbdToHtml.pl gives unhelpful error messages like:

Unexpected end of input file, Pod block not closed
Context: Pod markup in file 'filename.dbd.pod'

This does not help at all to find the error. What is missing is at least the line number where the Pod block was opened. Better the name/type/keyword of the Pod block as well.

Turns out the problem was not to end the file with =cut.
