I like having perldoc output to a split window, and I wanted to output module documentation if you were on a 'use Module;' line, so I recently came up with this (my vim-foo could probably be better):
let l:this = @
if match(l:this, '^ *\(use\|require\) ') >= 0
let l:this = substitute(l:this, '^ *\(use\|require\) *', "", "")
let l:this = substitute(l:this, ";.*", "", "")
let l:this = substitute(l:this, " .*", "", "")
exe ':0r!perldoc -t ' . l:this
exe ':0r!perldoc -t -f ' . @
"Display docs for built-in functions when cursor is on function name
"or for modules when cursor is on 'use' or 'require' line.
map ,h :call PerlDoc()<CR>:set nomod<CR>:set filetype=man<CR>:echo "pe
Updated. (I knew nothing about Vim programming before I started this...it took a couple of hours to come up with the first version of this, so comments, etc., welcome).
Update: Added set nomod.
Update: Added filetype, C-M=>CR, echo message
Update: added -t
