A module's path can be found using perldoc -l.

I like pod2html, thanks.

Still, I think a ToC should be in every doc, not just html versions

    The results of pod2html are nice - the program itself is a bit rusty - but that's not my point. I agree that a ToC should be in every doc, but what use is it when running commandline perldoc - you can't click on a chapter in the ToC and jump to it.

    Man, writing documentation is harder than writing the code! I recently designed a website to move some of the example usages OUT of my POD to make the POD more accessible, it was getting very large.

    I must point out my new discovery of CSS (blush). While designing that website, i was determined to not include the POD docs, because the point of the website was hold content not in the docs. However, when trying to link to other CPAN mirror's, i noticed that none of them were as up-to-date as i would like, and most of them did not turn URL's into links.

    So, i ran pod2html on my module and the CSS stylesheets took care of the rest. The result.

    Writing documentation is hard! ;)
