I commented earlier on Activestate's HTML Documentation. I have Build 629 installed on my pc. I installed a more recent version on a friends pc and was dismayed to realize that they switched the HTML documentation from a large group of HTML files to a single .chm(compiled HTML) file. This might be a resonable move for some applications, but it does not work well with perl where new modules need to be added to the core distro. The old way, new package downloads would add HTML docs to a table of contents and make life easy, now you have to hunt through the directory tree. Anyway you can still download the old style documentation with a ppm command, But I wish that they didn't add this "improvement" by default.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
