faqpods - print out pod paths for the standard perl faqs
This program uses your configuration’s
installprivlibdirectory to look up the full paths to those pod pages. Any files in that directory whose names start in
perlfaqwill be printed to the standard output, one per line. This is normally used in backticks to produce a list of filenames for other commands.
$ podgrep typeglob `faqpods` ....
You can also run this using alternate perl binaries, like so:
$ podgrep -i thread `filsperl faqpods` ....
