Question and Answer with Larry Wall published on Jun 22, 2018 by The Perl Conference:

Mostly just make sure you connect with some people.

We can have modules out there in the DarkPAN but we don't want to have, you know, dark perl programmers. In the sense, you know, of ones off in the closet, that don't interact with others. The real strength, are parts of our community that CAN welcome, and there are. For every place of darkness, that you want to point out, there are also places of brightness. There are people who are serving, who are just loving other people, and my advice is: FIND THOSE PEOPLE.

Stay away from the old curmudgeons who are, you know: GET OFF MY LAWN! and find the people who will encourage you and make you a better person.

Larry Wall

Type perlpdf instead of perldoc!

This bash function uses pod2pdf to produce a very nice san-serif font PDF with title and footer and opens it with the "open" command (for OSX, adjust as needed). The tempfile is necessary for the PDF reader (Preview) to have a filename should one choose to save the file as, for example: "perldoc -q array.pdf". pod2pdf seems to call PDF::API2 about 10,000 times per page so it's slow on large documents:
function perlpdf() { P=perldoc; X="$P $@"; $P -uT "$@" | pod2pdf --title="$X" --footer-text="$X" > "/tmp/$X.pdf"; open "/tmp/$X.pdf"; }
Type perlpdx instead of perlpdf!

This one uses ghosts‎crip‎t ps2pdf via man via pod2man to produce a plainer looking serif font PDF with a more generic title and footer (perl version/date/etc) and a filename. It seems more complicated but the process is extremely fast.
function perlpdx(){ P=perldoc; $P -uT "$@" | pod2man > "/tmp/$P $*.1"; man -t "/tmp/$P $*.1" | ps2pdf - "/tmp/$P $*.pdf"; open "/tmp/$P $*.pdf"; }
