in thread The sad state of Perl documentation

I will have to completely disagree here.
Ok, but can I make it clear that I have a few minor problems with the docs for some of the functions in perlfunc, and I think that the documentation should be available in more formats. That's all!

And I am really unhappy with the sad state of the documentation for all VCR's I have ever owned by the way ;--)
You know, VCRs etc are often cited as devices which are really difficult to use, etc. I did an HCI module last term and they were continually cited as being hard to use. I have owned 2 VCRs, and have never found them very complicated to operate or use. The docs provided explained the more "advanced" features (like timer or VideoPlus recording), and the rest was easy even without going to the documentation. One problem I have had thought is the counter-intuitive arrangement of buttons on the remote, but heck, you can't have it all, can you?

...and work on the core docs that it is quite comprehensive...
The docs are certainly comprehensive. I just think that in some areas they omit some information which would be useful to newbies and aren't quite as clear as they could be.
