in reply to perldoc.pl - An alternative to perldoc.perl.org

http://perldoc.perl.org has had some issues for many years.

I'm curious about what those may be. I also wonder what, if any, issues perldoc.pl might have. That is: would switching to the latter be a clear and definite improvement for us?

I reckon we are the only monastery ever to have a dungeon stuffed with 16,000 zombies.

    Since perldoc.perl.org seems to be drifting I've asked the question of the webmasters if there is any merit recommending/adopting perldoc.pl.

    The main issue I looked at (way back) was the fact that the module list did not match the version of perl. Many more modules were missing. I was unable to replicate the issue locally, perhaps it's an environment problem. https://github.com/jonallen/perldoc.perl.org/issues has some other issues.

    For reference, I've had a response to say that the maintainers of perldoc.perl.org are working on some updates.
