Hi

cperl-mode can't call perldocs for functions with a hyphen anymore like "-e"
or "-X"

(cperl-perldoc "-e") or "M-x cperl-perldoc RET -e" result to
   "error in process sentinel: Man-bgproc-sentinel: Can't find the -e
manpage"

But perldoc -f -e works fine in the shell, and as far as I can see from the
sources of cperl-mode "-e" this case is covered to be mapped on the -f
switch.

Tested on 23 and 22 from two different users on different continents.

Cheers
  Rolf
