Re: [PerlGlobe] Easy-to-use Perl Documentation on the Web

It looks like the version of the docs that you have there is from Perl 5.6.1. Is there any reason why you aren't using something a bit more up to date?

I'd recommend perldoc.com which is still a couple of versions out of date but does have docs for multiple versions of Perl so you're more likely to find the docs for the version that you are actually using.
