NAME ^

pmfunc - cat out a function from a module

DESCRIPTION ^

Given a fully-qualified function, this program opens up the file and attempts to display the source for that function.

EXAMPLES ^

    $ pmfunc Cwd::_perl_getcwd
    sub _perl_getcwd
    {
        abs_path('.');
    }

RESTRICTIONS ^

Only subroutines that are defined in the normal fashion are seen, since a simple pattern-match is what does the extraction. Those loaded other ways, such as via AUTOLOAD, typeglob aliasing, or in an eval, will all necessarily be missed.

This is mostly here for people who are too lazy to type

    sed '/^sub getcwd/,/}/p' `pmpath Cwd`
or
    perl -ne 'print if /^sub\s+getcwd\b/ .. /}/' `pmpath Cwd`

RESTRICTIONS ^
