in thread SSH for windows

I've now installed Strawberry perl {but haven't uninstalled activestate yet...:o)}. strawberry perl seems very good!

One question: is there a strawberry perl equivalent of the 'ActivePerl User Guide'? It's a nice HTML page that pops up and gives you easy access to all the HTML formatted man pages for all the packages. It looks like Strawberry Perl doesn't include HTML man pages -- are they easy to generate? I can cobble up an ActiveState-like front end for it if the pages are all about. I've download the perldoc.perl.org HTML docs but that package is nice but doesn't include hardly any of the packages I use. I'll try looking at makefile to see how the HTML pages are generated when a package is installed.

Also, do I correctly gather that the equivalent of the "perl package manager" with Activestate is just "cpan"? {but so far Strawberry has run all of my programs with no additional packages loaded, so it comes with a lot of stuff pre-installed!!}

    You may want to check out Pod::POM::Web, which according to the acknowledgements section of its documentation indicates that it "deeply inpsired" by "the structure of HTML Perl documentation released with ActivePerl" among other things. I've used it before and I did find it convenient to have a web interface for the documentation of what was installed in my Perl environment.

    Strawberry Perl comes with cpan and cpanm utilities. Both allow for installing modules directly from CPAN - including modules that need to be compiled (such as those that use XS). Although I have never used it with Strawberrry Perl, it does include PPM.
