perl-pod-preview.el displays a preview of Perl POD documentation in Emacs, using pod2man and man for formatting. It's mainly for use while editing, so you can see how the formatting comes out, but it can also be used when browsing code to see its documentation nicely formatted up.

The sig is a Gnu PG ascii armoured signature generated from my key.

See also perl-pod-coding.el which lets Emacs recognise the =encoding line of POD input, though to process that you'll need perl 5.10 pod2man, and even then the conservative output from pod2man means you only really get ascii through successfully. Have a look at perl-pod-gt.el too.

perldoc.el can display man-ified POD in a similar way, running the perldoc program and thus getting modules installed under your usual PERL5LIB etc locations.

perl-pod-preview.el has an EmacsWiki page.
