I'm curious about this statement. My installation of OS X seems to have perldoc and the Perl manpages installed just fine. So I'm still waiting for updates...

Nvuku -- (fyi & fwiw) on my Mac, which has the default perl installation that came in OSX 10.3.5, "perldoc perlfunc" (or any other target) gets 'No documentation found for "perlfunc"'. The perldoc for perlfunc can be opened through "man perldoc" though.

I'm kinda new to mac and to perl docs, so Brian's perldoc man page is very welcome to me -- and maybe my failure to have normal perldoc on the mac is me doing something wrong.

    From what Brian has said (and the info I gleaned from the message in the newsgroup) it doesn't seem like you're doing anything wrong at all. I didn't run into this issue, it seems, because I installed the Developer Tools shortly after installing OS X. And apparently that also includes the missing perldoc files.
