This is because text returned by perldoc is no more POD, but is just plain text. For example:
$ head /usr/share/perl/5.14/pod/perldoc.pod =head1 NAME perldoc - Look up Perl documentation in Pod format. =head1 SYNOPSIS B<perldoc> [B<-h>] [B<-D>] [B<-t>] [B<-u>] [B<-m>] [B<-l>] [B<-F>] [B<-i>] [B<-V>] [B<-T>] [B<-r>] [B<-dI<destination_file>>] $ perldoc perldoc | head PERLDOC(1) User Contributed Perl Documentation PE +RLDOC(1) NAME perldoc - Look up Perl documentation in Pod format. SYNOPSIS perldoc [-h] [-D] [-t] [-u] [-m] [-l] [-F] [-i] [-V] [-T] [-r] [-ddestination_file] [-oformatname] [-MFormatterClassName]
Try perldoc -u <whatever> | pod2pdf instead (option -u makes perldoc show just raw Pod source).
Sorry if my advice was wrong.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • Outside of code tags, you may need to use entities for some characters:
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
