NAME

Perldoc::Server - Local Perl documentation server

SYNOPSIS

 perldoc-server [options]
 
 Options:
 --perl /path/to/perl   Show documentation for this Perl installation
 --port 1234            Set server port number
 --public               Run as a public server (defaults to private)
 --help                 Display help

DESCRIPTION

Perldoc::Server is a Catalyst application to serve local Perl documentation in the same style as http://perldoc.perl.org.

In addition to keeping the same look and feel of http://perldoc.perl.org, Perldoc::Server offer the following features:

  • View source of any installed module

  • Improved syntax highlighting

    • Line numbering

    • use and require statements linked to modules

  • Sidebar shows links to your 10 most viewed documentation pages

CONFIGURATION

--perl

By default, Perldoc::Server will show documentation for the Perl installation used to run the server.

However, using the --perl command-line option, it is also possible to serve documentation for a different Perl installation, e.g.

 perldoc-server --perl /usr/bin/perl

Note that while Perldoc::Server requires Perl 5.10.0 or newer, the --perl option can be used to display documentation for older Perls.

--port

Sets the server's port number - defaults to 7375 ("PERL" on a phone keypad).

--public

Runs as a public server. If this option is not set, the server will default to private mode, i.e. only accepting connections from localhost.
