 Alt format for man pages?

Is there anyway I can get the PERL man pages in
some kind of word-processing format, like .DOC or
.WPD, or even .RTF?

I'm trying to print them out in HTML, but there
just too much information to make it manageable.

Thanks.

Blasphemy!

No really, the solution to this is simple: Use your browsers "Save As"
feature to save the file as HTML. Most word processing applications (even
the evil one) will import HTML. Then you can do whatever the hell you want!

It's even easier than that for win32 citizens.  ActiveState
Perl comes with a huge HTML tree which sits in the directory
whre Perl was installed, and these can be directly imported
by anything which reads in HTML files.  And if you don't want
to do that, there's a pod2html Perl program that comes with
the install, which will be easier than pulling up the
browser and doing all the files page-by-page.
