Please write in English, because the Emacs maintainers do not have
translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list,
and to the gnu.emacs.bug news group.

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

This isn't really a bug so much as a feature request.  Essentially, the
problem is that in Perl mode, it would be nice if whatever parser was
around could automatically figure out that "::" is part of a name for
the purposes of doing a man lookup.  That is, if I'm hovering over a 
Perl-style man page, it would be useful man would understand it
