It seems that pdldoc can't handle similarly named
routines, albeit in different modules. A case in point
is the histogram function, which is found in both
PDL::Graphics::PLplot and PDL::Primitive.

On my system, PDL::Primitive::histogram is hidden by
the PLplot routine.

    I fixed this in CVS in early spring. Multiple matches are
    announced, and you can choose which one (the first one is
    displayed by default).
    The newer documentation code also finds documentation in
    your autoload path, if your ".pdl" files contain standard
    POD stuff.

    Another example is "cmul", which is present in both PDL::FFT
    and PDL::Complex.

    Thanks for the report!
