in reply to How to RTFM

I'd add two points as appendices to Masem's highly useful post:

  • If you're using ActivePerl, you already have a goodly number of docs in pretty HTML format on your hard drive. From release notes to install notes, the FAQs to all installed modules, and much, much more! All for the low price of -- oh, nevermind. Anyways, look in the \html directory off of your Perl install directory. For me, that's c:\Perl\html, for example. If you're lazy, you can take a look at the official ActiveState's copy to get an idea of what sort of info is there.
  • There's one more reference site that I didn't see mentioned: PerlFAQ has some useful tidbits, and deserves mention.
Anyways, hope these help in y'all's quest to Respect The Friendly Monks!
