Is there any pod in the file? perldoc will report "No documentation found for..."
if there is no pod in the file. Also do 'perl -V' and see if the
current directory is in @INC. (man perldoc also says the file
can be in the PATH env variable).

Also do "perldoc -m module_name" which lists the entire contents of the
file. If this works, then there is probably no pod in the file.
