in reply to perl docs -- I am so sick of...

Have you checked using perldoc -o <file_type> -d <destination_file> ...
.I use to have an old script written with this that works like 80% - 85% of the time browsing the pod files documentation for information and output as html.
See below, the following might help:

#!/usr/bin/perl use warnings; use strict; use Carp qw(croak); use Readonly; Readonly my $space => q{ }; #a single space croak " Usage pperldoc <option> docname " unless @ARGV == 1 or @ARGV = += 2; # initialized the value of $ARGV[0] and [1], in-case no value was give +n $ARGV[0] //= $space; $ARGV[1] //= $space; my $first_arugment = $ARGV[0]; my $second_arugment = $ARGV[1]; if ( $first_arugment =~ m/^-/ ) { # check flag for first arugment if ( $second_arugment ne $space ) { # check second arugment were other character if ( $second_arugment !~ m/[a-z]+?/i ) { my $special_name = transform_doc_name($second_arugment); system( qq{ perldoc -o html -d ${special_name}.html $first_arugment $second_ar +ugment} ); } else { system( qq{ perldoc -o html -d ${second_arugment}.html $first_arugment $second +_arugment} ); } } else { croak "Please specify docname" } } elsif ( $first_arugment !~ m/^-/ ) { # check flag for first arugmen +t # check first arugment if module has double full colon if ( $first_arugment =~ m/.+?::.+?/ ) { ( my $doc_new_name = $first_arugment ) =~ y/::/_/s; system(qq{ perldoc -o html -d ${doc_new_name}.html $first_arug +ment}); } else { system(qq{ perldoc -o html -d ${first_arugment}.html $first_ar +ugment}); } } sub transform_doc_name { my ($doc) = @_; $doc = 'perl_lingo'; return $doc; }
