in reply to cpan modules - pm only?

If you look at the author's page on CPAN, you'll see a list of Registered Modules for that author (see here for an example).

The codes after each module name indicate whether the module uses a combination of C and Perl (look for the 'c' flag) - for example, DBD::Sybase has flags of RcmOp.

More information on these flags is here.

I don't know if all modules on CPAN have these flags associated with them, though, so this may or may not help you :)

    Indeed, not all modules (far from all modules), are 'registered' and have those codes. In all other cases, you can just browse the package on CPAN. Just follow the browse link (in your example: browse). Then you'll see the .c files.

    All code is usually tested, but rarely trusted.

    that is exactly what I was seeking. Indeed, it's not there in all cases, but very useful to know about.

[Corion]: Yay, vacation time now - one week off work (but a Perl workshop in the middle ;)) )
[talexb]: TStanley I just realized that I was in your area for a convention back in April. We were at the high school for the weekend, the one with the long driveway. Nice spot.
[TStanley]: I am heading to Arlington, Virginia next week, then I get to spend an entire week at home. Looking forward to that as I will have spent 7 weeks on the road by the end of next week
[talexb]: That's a long road trip. I haven't travelled for business in years.
