Sepia is a set of features to make Emacs a better tool for Perl
development, including:
* an interactive prompt (REPL) for evaluating code;
* cross-referencing to find and navigate between function and
variable definitions and uses;
* variable- and function-name completion.
* eldoc support to echo function arguments in the minibuffer
* functions to simplify POD browsing with Emacs-w3m
