Most of the objections to perldoc can be solved by pointing people to perldoc.perl.org. I personally find it better than the perldoc "man pages" because it is easier to search, can be simply bookmarked, etc.

If you're learning Perl, the same site offers an archive of itself that you can download and run locally. Truly invaluable.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
    ] &#93;

    LanX wonders, do we have a rule against systematic down voting?
    [erix]: we frown :)
    [marto]: Does the command line arg --product-version@ help?
    [LanX]: xD
    [erix]: 'systematic' is going to be hard to define I think
    [marto]: Err no @

    [Corion]: marto: Naah, my module doesn't care, but the users of my module might expect some things to work in Chrome that only work in later builds (or, as seems to be the case, don't work there either ;) )
    [Corion]: But I really wonder - I can tell Chrome to go offline, but requesting pages over the network still succeeds. But if I manually click the "offline" checkbox, that's different :-/
