in reply to The sad state of Perl documentation

open your eyes,
Perldoc as PDF 3.0 MB
currently covering Perl Version 5.005_02, so it's in general quite up to ones needs, and if you look further into the document info you will not by chance and not by surprise see that it's been made with pod2ps v1.0.1, which give's you and all of us the ability to convert whole directorys in one handstrike to a new PDF-manual.
So, if you want to help, mail to Andy Dougherty.
