Updating HTML docs?

Well, I'm embarrassed already, Bob!

I intended to send that message to the SDPM list, which is why I
switched to my encoded email address (rlssdpm at schnapp.org).  Apparently,
I only sent it to you.  Argh.

I followed netiquette and searched ActiveState's FAQs before asking.
I've even (since) Googled the question -- and the results seem to
indicate that my embarrassment about the question may be unjustified.
Others have commented on this gaping hole.

For what it's worth, I ended up manually running pod2html for the group
of modules in which I'm interested.  And then I manually edited
perltoc.html, to incorporate the generated files.

It should be relatively easy to build a perl script to do the rebuild,
but I don't think I'm going to find the time in the very near future...

Thanks for the response!
