Update HTML Doc [72809 sourcecode]
I've always been confounded as to how to update the nifty converted pod docs that are created when you install ActiveState's perl. PPM will update these pages when you install a module with it, but it seems to only know about those modules it's installed. So if you download or create your own, you are on your own. After (finally) digging around in my perl distribution and source tree I found a reference to the ActivePerl::DocTools modules - which I didn't know existed. Which lead me to here - a useful thread on managing this stuff and a script to try out too.
