Subject: Win32: The "perldoc" command is broken
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 437b
Running perldoc for module Foo 'which' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file. Could not run 'which html2text': at C:/strawberry-perl/perl/lib/ line 6190. --------------------------------------- I think that speaks for itself. On Win32, we're not going to have which (you should be using File::Which that is in Bundle::CPAN) and we're also probably not going to have html2text. :)

I think this is rather a matter for a HTML::Display chainsaw than for File::Which scissors. Thanks for the report, I knew this part of the code needed further inspection but then forgot. -- andreas

After 1.90 this needs to be resolved. I haven't paid much attention to this because the perldoc command is not essential. Maybe it should be ripped out, maybe it needs to be resolved with HTML::Display. Opinions welcome.
