in reply to The sad state of Perl documentation

The complete Perl 5.8.8 documentation is available online at http://perldoc.perl.org/, and on the main page you may download both the HTML (with a very useful included javascript search engine) and the PDF version. ( http://perldoc.perl.org/perldoc.tar.gz). I don't think other languages are doing any better in this regard.

update: BTW if you want to learn Perl, there are very good docs available here : http://www.techbooksforfree.com/perlpython.shtml
"Extreme Perl" and "Learning Perl the hard way" are especially worth reading.

update: I don't disagree anymore :)

    wazoox, please keep in mind that you're responding to a post which is almost 6 years old. That's a lot of water under the bridge.

      I'm afraid I forgot to look at the date, shame on me :)
