in reply to perldoc PATH

I don't think perldoc can recursively search the PATH directories. It does have a -r switch which can recursively search the @INC directories:

perldoc -h -r Recursive search (slow)
If you really need this, I guess you could append all the PATH dirs to @INC.

See also perldoc -D

    Thanks. That works well. Bit slow (I guess because of the recursive search), but works OK.

    I am also going to generate 'man' files using pod2man. Is there a similar recursive search for UNIX man command as well.

    I also see that you can do a 'man' instead of perldoc for installed perl modules and the man page appears identical to perldoc output. For example

    man File::Path perldoc File::Path
    generate similar looking output.

    I do see that the man files are in a single directory. Does that mean I have to put the 'man' files in a single directory?

    Thanks

      Check the docs:
      man man
      I also see that you can do a 'man' instead of perldoc
      As documented in perldoc.
