NAME

Pod::Perldocs - view remote pod via Pod::Perldoc

DESCRIPTION

This is a drop-in replacement for perldoc based on Pod::Perldoc. Usage is the same, except in the case when documentation for a module cannot be found on the local machine, in which case a query (via SOAP::Lite) will be made to a remote pod repository and, if the documentation is found there, the results will be displayed as usual.

NOTE

The values of $soap_uri and $soap_proxy at the top of this script reflect the location of the remote pod repository.

SERVER

See the CPAN-Search-Lite project on SourceForge at http://sourceforge.net/projects/cpan-search/ for the software needed to set up a remote pod repository used by perldocs.
