script type
The Perldoc.vim plugin is a command + function that enables the perldoc command to be used from within the Vim text editor.  When activated the Perldoc command opens a new window at the top of the screen and places the output of the perldoc command into that window. This read-only window is just a Vim window, so you can perform all of the normal commands that you can in Vim - such as searching for a word or expression, yanking examples and code snippets.
install details
See the README.txt file.

For fastest installation save the zip file in your personal vim directory (eg $HOME/.vim,   or $VIM\vimfiles\) and unzip, it will place the 3 vim files in the correct locations. Details are in the README file. Please read it before e-mailing, but do e-mail if you have questions.
