bug#6013: [cperl-mode] cperl-perldoc doesn't work anymore with file test

From: LanX
Subject: bug#6013: [cperl-mode] cperl-perldoc doesn't work anymore with file test operators like -e
Date: Fri, 23 Apr 2010 13:16:27 +0200


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.
