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.
- 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.
