Is there an index to the perl man pages?

Discussion in 'Perl Misc' started by Yehuda Berlinger, Aug 21, 2003.

  1. Has anyone done a comprehensive index to the perl man pages? perldoc
    is sort of an index to perlfunc and perlfaq, and perlindex is a regex
    match over all of the docs, but not an index. I'm looking for a tool
    to look up "array" or "@" and get to the right place(s), sort of like
    what the O'reilly safari does for their books.

    Well, you could try the search box in http://www.perldoc.com . It's not
    perfect, but it's probably better than just regexp'ing for words.
