( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help?? perldoc, and many other perl sites were nicely rehauled recently
If I go to, I see Last updated on 13 August 2009. Not a sign of being "recently rehauled". Furthermore, the homepage also says The code generating this web site is based on the code that was generating as it was released by Jon Allen on 24th December 2008. An indication it was worked on for half a year, then abandoned.

On top of that, perldoc proundly presents "Perl version 5.8.8 documentation". 5.8.8 was released January 2006. Perl has seen 6 releases, of which 2 major, since.

But hey, if that works, great! All we need to do overhaul perlmonks, delete the last 4 years of articles, remove the ability to post new content, and Perl will eat PHP before Christmas.
