Perldoc::Server - Local Perl documentation server
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
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
require statements linked to modules
Sidebar shows links to your 10 most viewed documentation pages
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.
Sets the server's port number - defaults to 7375 ("PERL" on a phone keypad).
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.
