Ubuntu 10.10 comes with Perl 5.10.1 pre-installed, but strangely enough
perldoc isn't part of the package.
$ perldoc You need to install the perl-doc package to use this program.
How can I make this feature available?

I feel a bit stupid saying it, but did you try installing perl-doc?
# apt-get install perl-doc
