Consistent use of 'Perl' for the language

(Arguably, 'a future version of ...' could instead be referring to 'perl'
the program, but we already say 'a future version of Perl' in three other

Father Chrysostomos [Mon, 5 Jan 2015 07:18:02 +0000]
perldiag: Document ‘Bad symbol for scalar’

Originally this was a separate message in gv.c, with an exception
listed in diag.t

d5713896ec merged several functions together, changing the exception
to ‘Bad symbol for %s’.

bb85b28a added diag_listed_as in the wrong place.

de6f7947 moved it to the right place, removing the diag.t entry.

But all this time ‘Bad symbol for scalar’ remained undocumented.

    (F) You called a method on a class that did not exist, and the method

be considered public and documented.
