Where do I find the documentation for ActiveState (Windows) Perl?

Perldoc

Depending on which Windows you are running, in a command window type:

     perldoc

Just like on Unix you can type:

    perldoc [module name]

    For example:
    perldoc CGI

to get module documentation.

HTML documentation

The typical place for the documentation menu is: Start => Programs => ActiveState => Documentation

Otherwise you should be able to find the same documentation in:

    c:\Perl\html\index.html

Obviously substitute another drive label for c: if perl is installed elsewhere.
