in thread perldoc problem

I'm running Strawberry Perl on Windows 7 and it adds its bin directory to the path automatically. I didn't do anything special and certainly didn't edit the system path manually.

I get:

C:\Users\ian>perldoc -u -f atan2 =over 8 =item atan2 Y,X X<atan2> X<arctangent> X<tan> X<tangent> Returns the arctangent of Y/X in the range -PI to PI. For the tangent operation, you may use the C<Math::Trig::tan> function, or use the familiar relation: sub tan { sin($_[0]) / cos($_[0]) } The return value for C<atan2(0,0)> is implementation-defined; consult your atan2(3) manpage for more information. =back C:\Users\ian>

Maybe the installer wasn't run as administrator, so it coulnd't edit the system path, on Windows Vista or later?

    As I said, I was surprised that the OPs install didn't do that for him.

    That makes sense. Maybe the installer could check it has the right privileges; and yell/advise if not?

    The start of some sanity?

      Last time I (this guy) ran one (2010/2011) it did complain ... but IIRC it was the year after I complained about it not complaining ... though admittedly my memory is fuzzy
