in reply to What are Modules

Thanks. no perl man pages here at work. will need to do a bit of research at home. From a newbie perspective it may be helpful to add modules and a brief explanation of them (as one of the responses stated) in the newbie sections of this site. Heading to the CPAN url now to learn more ... thanks! bob

    If your saying that perl is installed, but you don't have any man pages, i.e. if 'perldoc perl' or 'man perl' doesn't work, then something is broken. Or maybe the perl you run linked to another directory not in your path. (does 'ls -l $(which perl)' indicate, e.g. that you're running /usr/local/bin/perl but its just a link to /opt/perl/bin/perl, and '/opt/perl/bin' is not in your PATH, and '/opt/perl/man' is not in your MANPATH).
