SPUG: Cool perldoc site

This is definitely much better than perldoc.org. 

I only wish they had search box to quickly search something I am looking for. 

An example of a search I would like to do is for: "<>". Sometime I don't know how to perldoc for certain things. Do I need a perldoc -f or -q and I think a website like this (with the search box) can be useful.

Thanks for sharing the links with us.

I just heard about the perldrunks perldoc website[1] as an alternate to
perldoc.org (which is a bit flakey). The one at perldrunks is maintained
by Jon Allen[2], a.k.a. JJ, a member of the Birmingham Perl Mongers[3].
It's pretty cool. It includes syntax highlighting of code samples and lots
of cross-reference links. For example, the splice() function page[4] could
have helped Kim solve that one bug in his gibberize script.
