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.

    But you don't explain why

    The ActiveState documentation includes other perldoc information like the FAQs, perlfunc, pragmas, etc.

    So does HTMLBatch. No, it can't include ActiveState copyrighted material , but it does includes all the regular perl faqs 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.

    :) I like Pod::POM::Web too, esp since I dont have disk space for html docs -- but I'm "way over" the frameset layout

    FWIW, if you're on unix, http://perl.overmeer.net/ oodoc looks polished

    In the same frame theme as oodoc there is also pdoc, used by http://doc.bioperl.org/
