in reply to ActiveState Perl build 630

I was about to suggest Update HTML Doc to pick up the docs from all installed modules.

But on second thought, my guess is that it no longer works with the new doc setup. We may have to prevail on fellow monk Rudif to investigate the possibility of a revised version to pick up all existing modules into the new docs or the retro-fitted old-style docs.

    The new docs has advantages: full-text search of the entire documentation set, and collapsable TOC tree.

    However, it's a "compiled" help file, so I don't see how a simple tool can simply rebuild the TOC page.

    I like the old way, if only because it's "open". We could change the generated TOC (to add scripted expandable tree things), and add a search capability, or whatever.
