Distributed Perl Documentation (5.005_02)
Every perl distribution
comes with the following documentation, typically viewable through
the standard man(1) program, the slower and less flexible
perldoc(1) program, or as HTML. However, many programmers
seem to have trouble finding that documentation, so here it all is;
you may also fetch it manually as one gigantic
GNU-zipped tarfile (1593k) for viewing on your local system.
The documentation listed above is available as one huge postscript
file (1816k) suitable for printing, or as a textfile
(941k) for searching. Other Perl
documentation may also be available.
- Installation directions for non-Unix ports.
- Running under Plan9.
- Modules peculiar to OS/2.
- Documentation peculiar to VMS.
- Tools peculiar to Microsoft.
Some pre-built binaries for compiler-challenged platforms can be found in the CPAN ports directory.
