pmcat man page

pmcat — page through a module file


Given a module name, figure out the path name and send that to the user's pager.

$ pmcat CGI

This works also on alternate installed versions of Perl:

$ oldperl -S pmcat strict
$ filsperl -S pmcat Threads

This command is mostly here for people too lazy to type

$ more `pmpath CGI`
