if you're really so worried about the "poor newbies", then
undertake this task yourself. don't wait for "the leaders"
of the "Perl community" to do it for you. you don't even
have to write a script. you can just use the one i wrote,
or take merlyn's suggestion and use pod2pdf or its
underlying module Pod::Pdf.
then, find space on a web server somewhere and keep
available an up-to-date version of your
compiled documentation. i haven't missed any
points. you have in assuming that someone else should be
creating this documentation that you want. more power
to whomever should decide that printable documentation is
important enough to themselves and other users of Perl to
implement and maintain a resource such as this.
