( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Are you using the git-bash console ?

There you'll have which and a Perl installation and Unix paths notation.

That doesn't effect the normal cmd.exe unless you change PATH to point to the git utilities. ( I never tried this)

Anyway perldoc -l MODUL will point you to your Perl's installation directory.

For instance the doc location of a core module like warnings always works.

Fired up my Win box and inside cmd.exe it works

D:\>perldoc -l warnings C:\Perl_524\lib\warnings.pm

But seems that git-bash comes without perldoc

$ perldoc -l warnings Can't locate Pod/Perldoc.pm in @INC ...

But the following works on both variations, provided you swap ' and " accordingly for cmd.exe

$ perl -Mwarnings -e 'print $INC{"warnings.pm"}' /usr/share/perl5/core_perl/warnings.pm

D:\>perl -Mwarnings -e "print $INC{q'warnings.pm'}" C:/Perl_524/lib/warnings.pm
ANYWAY DON'T TRY TO UNINSTALL git's Perl.

  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
