      POD: "plain old documentation". It's a means of bundling module documentation
      in the source code (where it stands some chance of getting updated whenever the
      code does!). You can view this documentation with 'perldoc'. For starters, try:

      $ perldoc perldoc

      If your O/S complains about 'perldoc' missing, then you may have to hunt for
      'perldoc' wherever you keep 'perl'.

      When you've digested that, try:

      $ perldoc perlpod
