Welcome to the monastery.
"Dear perlmonks, i am using macbookpro and just begining to learn perl. Typing " perldoc perlnumber" in the terminal doesn't work. Same is the issue with "perldoc" typing. It seems the issue is due to mac, but i dont know how to solve it. Thanks in advance for your input."
I have Mac OS X 10.7.5. This works for me (using Terminal):
$ perldoc perlnumber
PERLNUMBER(1) User Contributed Perl Documentation PERLNUMBER(1)
perlnumber - semantics of numbers and numeric operations in Perl
$n = 1234; # decimal integer
So, it would not appear to be a generic Mac issue.
