in thread forcing creation of html doc in activestate

What build of ActivePerl are you using? What error message was reported when you tried the code above? Missing module? (Can't locate HtmlHelp.pm)

With a little searching I found this email in the archives of an Activestate email list

ActivePerl no longer uses that module to generate it's html. It won't work with any ActivePerl 6xx builds. Starting with ActivePerl build 617, you can use the following command line to rebuild the html toc: perl -MActivePerl::DocTools -e"ActivePerl::DocTools::WriteTOC()" Note that the html toc is now regenerated automatically after installing/removing a module with ppm. Any new doc pages included with a ppm package are now included in the html toc. ds

On my computer I did a

perl -MActivePerl::DocTools -e"ActivePerl::DocTools::UpdateHTML()"

Aeems to work for me but use at your risk.

    I'm running 633. Yes, the error related to a missing module. I tried ppm to see if the module existed, and of course, it didn't.

    perl -MActivePerl::DocTools -e"ActivePerl::DocTools::UpdateHTML()"

    This works for me though. Very cool! Thanks for posting it.
