NAME ^

podpath - print the path to the Pod

DESCRIPTION ^

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.

EXAMPLES ^

    $ podpath Cwd
    /usr/local/devperl/lib/5.00554/Cwd.pm

It works with alternate installations, too:

    $ devperl -S podpath perlfunc
    /usr/local/devperl/lib/5.00554/pod/perlfunc.pod

    $ oldperl -S podpath IO::Handle
    /usr/lib/perl5/i386-linux/5.00404/IO/Handle.pm

    $ filsperl -S podpath Thread
    /usr/local/filsperl/lib/5.00554/i686-linux-thread/Thread.pm
