in thread Perl losing, unfairly

Really, it's combining bash and perl that is great fun. for example:

[me@host]$ more `which whichpm` #!/bin/sh perl "-M$1" -le '$_=shift; s|::|/|g; print $INC{"$"}' "$1" [me@host]$
Writing 'whichpm' in perl alone would take a fair bit more space.

And everyone knows that I love perl command line switches :-D

    Or just: perldoc -l
    $ alias whichpm='perldoc -l' $ whichpm HTML::Template /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.0/HTML/


      Nice... never noticed that. Of course, aliasing it is still a mix of perl and shell, which was my point :-D
