If you alias perldoc to perlfind and then try to format a local pod file, like "perldoc localfile.pod" or even "perldoc ./localfile.pod", perlfind returns the pod for perl's file test operators instead. The documentation says that it delegates to cpandoc if it doesn't understand the search term, but cpandoc, as well as plain old perldoc, deals with local pod files fine, so it's definitely perlfind at fault here.
