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 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!!}

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
