pman - Man Page

show a module's man page


Send a module's pod through pod2text and your pager.

This is mostly here for people too lazy to type

    $ pod2text `pmpath CGI` | $PAGER


    $ pman CGI
    $ pman Curses

Or running under different versions of Perl:

    $ oldperl -S pman CGI
    $ filsperl -S pman Threads
