If you're using Windows and find the default perldoc display suboptimal you may try this doskey macro

pdoc=perldoc -o html -T -w index $* > %TEMP%\perldoc_temp.html && star +t %TEMP%\perldoc_temp.html
If you then use pdoc Module::Name instead of perldoc Module::Name you get the docs formatted as HTML in a browser window. It's best to store the macro(s) in a file and start the Command Prompt via a shortcut like this: %windir%\System32\cmd.exe /F:ON /k doskey /macrofile="%USERPROFILE%\doskey.mac"
