[ANN] Update to

[ #22777 ]

I've just released an update to, which improves the look of the HTML pages, including syntax highlighting of all Perl code examples.

A complete archive of the site can be downloaded for off-line use at (~14M file). If you've not seen before, it contains the complete Perl 5.8.6 documentation set in both HTML and PDF formats. Please read the project page at for a full list of features.

Please send any comments or bug reports to

  • Quite tastefully done, if I say so myself. I'd love it if Tk::Pod could do something like this on the fly, Or Alan Fry's lovely Pod::Pdf.
  • I found a place where the heuristic for the syntax highlighting goes wrong. Look at perlop, "Quote and Quote-like Operators" [], the table listing "\U" and related escape sequences. The words "next", "char" and "case" are highlighted, and they shouldn't be, as this is just a table with plain text.
  • Can I ask for a small addition? Currently, in the links on the left, Under "Reference", you have links to "Language", "Functions", "Variables", "Pragma's", .... I'd like you to add "Operators []" to that list.

    I guess that perlfunc, perlop and perlvar are the most often perused perl docs for me. Whatever keyword I can't find in perlfunc, I look up in perlop. Therefore, to me anyway, they belong on the same level.
