in thread Perl documentation documentation

If you installed your own Perl, you have all of the documentation. If you are using the default Perl, some things are missing in some cases (see the macosx@perl.org mailing list discussions, for instance).

    Jiminy Crickets. I think I'm looking in the right spot, but I'm not positive. I went to perl.org, then mailing list archives, and took a peek at the perl.macosx archive. Over 8000 messages, no search function.

    In my brief look through the messages, I noted a message which suggested that perlfunc.pod and perldiag.pod are missing from the default Perl installation. Is this perhaps what you were thinking of?

    I do have the Developer Tools installed, so I'm not sure if my copies of the above pod files were installed when I installed the Developer Tools or the System. But they're certainly both on my system.

      I think that's where I first saw it. There was additional discussion on p5p, although I can't find the thread at the moment. I can't verify any of this on my own system because the first thing I do with a new Mac OS X installation is replace perl. :)

[marto]: List EXE_FILES installed by CPAN so a couple of people suggest that your code looks obfuscated. I'd have to ageree, from the perspective of those who can't follow all of that one liner, it doesn't read well

usemodperl will try to make better shapes with his line noise, like a camel, or boobs, then it will be called "clever" :-)
