in reply to Looking for Mr. Good Documentation!

I wouldn't necessarily say "the best" documention, but both Pod::Usage and Getopt::Long have documentation that are spiritually akin to Perl itself - easy to get started with, yet no dearth of depth.   So much so, that even a lunkhead like me easily figured out how to use them* with a degree of effectiveness.

[atcroft]: Lady_Aleena: I found the L<name|section> syntax, which describes linking to a perl manual page, and L<text|url> to link to a web page. The reason I asked was because I was on search.cpan.org looking at a module,
[atcroft]: and it referred to several other modules, but the links went to metacpan.org. I found that a bit of a surprise, and it got me wondering if there was a "standard" way to link to other modules in the documentation on CPAN.
