System Administration Guide: Network Services

Accessing Perl Documentation

Several sources of information about Perl are included in this Solaris release. The same information is available by using these two mechanisms.

You can access the man pages by adding /usr/perl5/man to your MANPATH environment variable. This example displays the Perl overview.

% setenv MANPATH ${MANPATH}:/usr/perl5/man
% man perl

You can access additional documentation by using the perldoc utility. This example displays the same overview information.

% /usr/perl5/bin/perldoc perl

The perl overview page lists of all the documentation that is included with the release.
