After one e-mail that visited this list on -h not being listed when -h
is used, I noticed that, at the end of the -h screen, the user is
redirected to 'perldoc perl'.
Unfortunately, perl manpage doesn't explain command line flags. The user
will read, and be redirected to 'perldoc perlrun'.
I understand that 'perl' is the index manpage, but why not redirect the
user to the manpage that is more likely to be helpful (if he is trying
to find more on switches).
Just to think about it :)
