Subject: cpan install does not rebuild PDL documentation database
I just did a cpan shell install of PDL::Stats for my system.
All tests passed and the install appeared to complete.
However, the pdldoc and in the pdl2/perldl shells I am
not able to browse the module docs.

The problem was fixed by running Basic/Doc/scantree.pl.

I don't think the PDL install installs that utility but it
should.  I'll be adding that bug to the PDL distribution
bug tracker to fix.  You might add a run of the command
as part of your install process if you find the scantree.pl
command in the PATH.

Thanks for the report. I added $PDL::onlinedoc->scan(__FILE__) if $PDL::onlinedoc; at the top of PDL::Stats modules for online doc processing. I'll check if that's still working / sufficient. Yes I'd think scantree.pl is a better solution to the problem. Thanks! Best, Maggie On 2011-06-10 09:42:22, CHM wrote: Show quoted text

Does this work with pdldoc or only in the pdl2/perldl shells at runtime? Show quoted text

I took a look at PDL::Doc and there is also a scantree method as well as routines for loading and saving the online database file. The methods can be used to update the online docs database directly. --Chris
