Thanks for your help. For what it's worth, I actually did RTFM and knew that there was supposed to be a blank line following cut. I had a CR at the end of the cut line so the cursor jumped to a new line for input and I stupidly thought that was a blank line. It was not. I entered a CR on the line following cut in order to get a true blank line and the pod documentation is now working fine.

I also found out that in Padre on Windows I could enter "perldoc" as a Run -> Run Command (or Ctrl+F5) and the documentation displayed just fine. I'm still working making this work with Eclipse (I think that I have to define a new External Tool) and on my Linux box (I have to install the perl-doc package).

However, I'm over that first hurdle. Thanks, again, for your help.

    IMHO running commands and piping STDOUT into a pane is a generic feature of every editor (or at least IDE).

    I'd be surprised if Padre or EPIC (i.e. Eclipse) do not already provide preset hotkeys. (maybe try F-keys in combination with Ctrl or Alt)
