in thread [emacs] perldoc on windows (update)

Regarding the update: To get around the Win 'more', you can invoke 'M-x shell-command perldoc ...' to get the results in an emacs buffer. No console required, but either copypasting names or wrapping shell-command into an emacs macro are needed.

    yeah , thanks,I know. :)

    I stole some code from Emacs::PDE which does it with pod2man and woman.el , this solves most issues.

    I also try to avoid the console and use eshell inside emacs instead, perldoc works there flawlessly.

    A third option might be to load the raw POD code and to switch to pod-mode. (didn't try this yet)

    I didn't start this thread because I don't have workarounds, but because I think that there should be a drop in replacement such that the logic and bindings in cperl-mode continue to work seamlessly.

      Yes, sure. But wouldn't it be much better to consider a two screen solution? Reading the docs in one monitor in a browser and coding in the other in our beloved emacs?

      This was the way i did it for a long time. Very convenient. Just some thoughts...

      Best regards, Karl
