in thread Better perldoc on Windows

Installed Pod::Server. It failed to run because it couldn't locate Coro/ Installed Coro. Still no joy. Neither ppm nor cpan command could find Coro::Cont. (Anyone know what Coro::Cont is, and where it is?) Frustrating, compared with the 1 to 2 minutes required to enter and run the two-line batch file. Thanks anyway.

    Coro::Cont used to be part of Coro... Pod-Server-1.10 doesn't use it anymore.

    I personally use tkpod or Perldoc::Server, but if you want batchery, try ap-user-guide

If that's the case you can still use the L<perldoc> command to read the core documentation and manpages for the installed modules. The script does not take any command line options. =head1 ENVIRONMENT Set the C<AS_BROWSER> environment variable to override what browser to use.
