if you say perldoc -t page|module|program the output will be paged but this is not the case with the switches "-f" and "-q": perldoc -t -f function will be NOT paged. (As I understand.) Is this different behaviour intended? Unfortunately for Windows the option "-t" is automatically set, so the information is not paged with queries for functions (-f) and queries for FAQs (-q), which raises periodically threads on the "Perl-Win32-Users Mailing List". _If_ it were ok that perldoc would always page with the "-t"-switch, this could be fixed. Regards Roland --
"perldoc -t -f function" is now paged.
