I am sure someone can.

man perl gave me the following,

Some documentation is not available as man pages, so if a cross-reference is
not found by man, try it with perldoc. Perldoc can also take you directly
to documentation for functions (with the -f switch). See "perldoc --help"
(or
"perldoc perldoc" or "man perldoc") for other helpful options perldoc
has to offer.

The "real" manual is, of course, the book by Larry Wall, but there
are some files, although mostly README's, under
/usr/doc/perl-<version> and lots of manual pages for specific
functions in the /usr/man/man3 directory.
There is a "perldoc" program too that will give you access to the
documentation installed on your system.

See also /var/adm/packages/perl-<version> to see which files have
been installed on YOUR system.
