modpods — print out paths for the standard modules


This program outputs the paths to all installed modules on your systems. This includes both the standard modules (which the stdpods command produces) and the site-specific ones (which the sitepods command produces).

This is just a front-end for calling pminst -l, supplied to make it more obvious what it does.


This finds all the modules whose documentation mentions destructors, and cats it out at you.

    $ podgrep -i destructor `modpods`

    =head1 /usr/local/devperl/lib/5.00554/i686-linux/ chunk 371

    Having read L<perltie> you will probably have already guessed that the
    error is caused by the extra copy of the tied object stored in C<$X>.
    If you haven't, then the problem boils down to the fact that the
    B<DB_File> destructor, DESTROY, will not be called until I<all>
    references to the tied object are destroyed. Both the tied variable,
    C<%x>, and C<$X> above hold a reference to the object. The call to
    untie() will destroy the first, but C<$X> still holds a valid
    reference, so the destructor will not get called and the database file
    F<tst.fil> will remain open. The fact that Berkeley DB then reports the
    attempt to open a database that is alreday open via the catch-all
    "Invalid argument" doesn't help.

    =head1 /usr/local/devperl/lib/5.00554/Tie/ chunk 40

    Normal object destructor method.
