Official Mirror
`mcpandoc' is a perl script that acts like `perldoc' except that
if it would have bailed out with
`No documentation found for "Uninstalled::Module"', it will instead
consult your minicpan, or scrape a CPAN index for the module's documentation
if that doesn't work.  It is a fork of the cpandoc manpage, with added support for
consulting a minicpan.
One important feature of `mcpandoc' is that it *only* scrapes the
live index if you do not have the module installed and if it cannot grab it
from your minicpan. So if you use `mcpandoc' on a module you already have
installed, then it will just read the already-installed documentation. This
means that the version of the documentation matches up with the version of the
code you have. As a fringe benefit, `mcpandoc' will be fast for
modules you've installed. :)
All this means that you should be able to drop in `mcpandoc' in
place of `perldoc' and have everything keep working.  See
the SNEAKY INSTALL entry elsewhere in this document for how to do this.
If you set the environment variable `MCPANDOC_FETCH' to a true value,
then we will print a message to STDERR telling you that `mcpandoc' is
going to make a request against the live CPAN index.
