basepods - Man Page

print out pod paths for the standard perl manpages


This program uses your configuration's installprivlib directory to look up the full paths to those pod pages.  Any files in that directory whose names end in .pod will be printed to the standard output, one per line.  This is normally used in backticks to produce a list of filenames for other commands.


    $ podgrep typeglob `basepods`

    $ basepods | grep delt

You can also run this using alternate perl binaries, like so:

    $ oldperl -S basepods | grep delt

    $ podgrep -i thread `filsperl basepods | grep delt`
