podpath - Man Page

print the path to the Pod


podpath prints the path to the Pod. podpath calls stdpods underneath if the Pod name includes 'perl'. Otherwise, it searches down @INC, printing the '.pod' filename if there is a separate Pod file, otherwise printing the 'pm' filename. This accommodates systems where the Pod lives in a separate file from the module file.


    $ podpath Cwd

It works with alternate installations, too:

    $ devperl -S podpath perlfunc

    $ oldperl -S podpath IO::Handle

    $ filsperl -S podpath Thread
