in reply to perl-doc vs perldoc vs Perldoc

In this context you're using Debian (ubuntu?) and the error message says:

  • You need to install the perl-doc package to use this program.

This is telling you to install the distros "perl-doc" package - not a package from CPAN.

Assuming Debian/Ubuntu you'd run "apt-get install perl-doc" to install the package, after which "perldoc" will work.
