perl -h
Message ID:

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 :)
