The history behind is complicated. For example, there's a GitHub repository that seems to contain its source, but the last update happened in 2016.

See for a new site motivated by the same feelings you expressed in the parent.

BTW, there's a way how to make links clickable on PerlMonks, e.g. []

map{substr$_->[0],$_->[1]||0,1}[\*||{},3],[[]],[ref qr-1,-,-1],[{}],[sub{}^*ARGV,3]

    Many thanks for the link! At last, exactly what the doctor ordered, this should get more promotion really. I've been wondering about the same thing, almost since I fell in love with Perl not too long ago, then perldoc.perl looked the same as now. At the same version also, which I think was already behind. Wouldn't need a facelift, was rather thinking of a simple update. It appears abandoned and even though the manuals don't change that fast it still feels wrong as it's also linked on, of course, and so about the first impression some people might get: an "official" doc repo with outdated content. It's how I got there. But then I was only looking for a painless option to have the docs on hand when traveling. Without googling every time. I do have a complete installation on my smartphone, even two, but it's no fun reading man pages in Android's Termux. Whereas looks good on my phone too. Bookmarked.
