Perl Documentation - download from where?

In older versions of Perl, it was common to find the html help files in the Perl installation path. This was good for “offline” script development.

Just installed v5.28.1 and I don’t see the help files anywhere. Did I miss a step during the install?

[I did find perldoc, but I liked the html for easier navigation - search and scroll.]

There are no HTML manuals in a normal build because the content of the build isn’t known in time for the HTML version of the manuals to be generated and included.

The old installer generation process required a build to exist before it’s contents were known and could be documented. That’s a circular dependency of a build on itself, and automated systems don’t handle that well.

There have been feature requests to make something available for offline use cases, and that is under consideration.
