10.3: Install missing Perl headers
Authored by: cynikal on Nov 03, '03 03:45:09PM

Speaking of panther oddities.. has anyone tried the perldoc command under panther?

I know i have the developer tools installed, even though that shouldn't be required.. but i can't get perldoc to work AT ALL.. is this a panther problem or a 5.8.x problem?

$ perldoc
Usage: perldoc [-h] [-V] [-r] [-i] [-v] [-t] [-u] [-m] [-n nroffer_program] [-l] [-T] [-d output_filename] [-o output_format] [-M FormatterModuleNameToUse] [-w formatter_option:option_value] [-F] [-X] PageName|ModuleName|ProgramName
perldoc -f PerlFunc
perldoc -q FAQKeywords

The -h option prints more help. Also try "perldoc perldoc" to get
acquainted with the system. [Perldoc v3.09]
