in reply to The sad state of Perl documentation

The complete Perl 5.8.8 documentation is available online at, and on the main page you may download both the HTML (with a very useful included javascript search engine) and the PDF version. ( I don't think other languages are doing any better in this regard.

update: BTW if you want to learn Perl, there are very good docs available here :
"Extreme Perl" and "Learning Perl the hard way" are especially worth reading.

update: I don't disagree anymore :)
