in thread How to Easily Check for Available CPAN Modules when Upgrading ActiveState Perl
Finally had time to check out Pod::Simple::HTMLBatch. If you're only wanting to access documentation for installed modules, I guess it can considered ok. However, I personally don't feel like it's a good replacement for the ActiveState web-based documentation that the OP was "spoilt" with using. The ActiveState documentation includes other perldoc information like the FAQs, perlfunc, pragmas, etc.
The module that I had suggested, Pod::POM::Web, includes all of those things that Pod::Simple::HTMLBatch does seem to cover. Also, Pod::POM::Web has a better interface and layout in my opinion.
Just wanted to share a comparison of the two modules for the benefit of others.
