you just have to use the -t option.

e.g. in emacs, press “Alt+! perldoc -t perlfunc”.

In the past (early 2000s), i had to use -t, else the output contain
some gibberish, but a year or 2 ago i noticed that it seems it doesn't
matter. Maybe emacs 22 did something or something.

btw, perl's doc comes in emacs info format too. Was so around 2000,
i'm sure it's still around.
