in reply to The sad state of Perl documentation

I think you'll find revamping the documentation to be a multi-month full-time job. That is why people like Randal wind up selling books, documentation is HARD!

If you think you can do better that the current state of things, MORE POWER TO YA! Me, I've found the docs to be almost exactly what I want. I rarely consult the books these days in favor of the perldoc pod system. (well, and 'less' for the more inscrutable modules. =)

Maybe you should consider championing a perl6-docu list for proposed changes in how POD should be used/written in Perl6. If you get something going come back here and shout it from the bell towers! I'll stick my nose in on something like that.

$you = new YOU;
honk() if $you->love(perl)
