I had also given anonymonk an upvote. See my update.

Re changing to "perldoc.pl". I've been using "perldoc.perl.org" for so long, possibly a couple of decades, that it's become like an old, favourite jumper: a bit frayed around the edges, a few holes here and there, but I still like to wear it. I definitely like the the A-Z function and module searches it provides which "perldoc.pl" doesn't have. Also, given it's being revamped at the moment, I think we should give it a bit longer before dismissing it.

    > changing to "perldoc.pl".

    I think this should be it's own thread.

    Others like choroba are more qualified to argue, because this discussion is at least a year old.

    personally

    • I liked the old interface at perldoc.perl.org better
    • I was told the maintainers are not responsive
    • perldoc.pl allows easily to pick deeplinks, that is a killer feature
    • The maintainer of perldoc.pl asked here for feature requests

    I'm not sure if he's happy if we fix this! ;-)

      I did recall that there was a discussion about "perldoc.pl" some time ago. I wasn't trying to reignite discussion here with a Re^7 OT comment; just responding to "Probably we should also reconsider switching to http://perldoc.pl".
