perl package's stub perl-doc defeats auto-apt
Binary package hint: perl
Normally, if I use auto-apt, then any attempt to run a missing program would trigger a prompt to install the program. Unfortunately, the stub 'perldoc' in the perl package defeats auto-apt.
% cat /etc/issue
Ubuntu 6.10 \n \l
% auto-apt run
Entering auto-apt mode: /bin/zsh
Exit the command to leave auto-apt mode.
% perldoc -f sleep
You need to install the perl-doc package to use this program.
% cat $(which perldoc)
# place-holder, diverted by perl-doc
echo You need to install the perl-doc package to use this program. >&2
