in reply to perldoc problem

I am likely to get yelled at, but as a new Perl user, I would recommend using Active State Perl instead of Strawberry.

The new ActiveState installers work fine.
I still run Perl 5.10 and "perldoc -u -f atan2" works just fine.
The new installers will set up the correct paths for you and it will just work.

    Seconded. Active Perl is still just a more complete Windows Product at this point.

    When (if) users find AS Perl limiting them at some point; then consider Strawberry.

    But for its out-of-the-box first experience, AS wins hands down.


    With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
    Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
    "Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

    The start of some sanity?
