in reply to Becoming familiar with a too-big codebase?

Devel::Trace usually does the trick for me. When it doesn't, I open up Devel::TraceCalls and GraphViz::ISA. If dealing with apache, I use Apache::Status.

Devel::ModInfo (and the tools it comes with) might also be useful (though I've not used them).

There are also useful B:: modules like B::Xref, but but they're more useful for developing tools like the forementioned modules (which might be what you're after).

I run a Win32 PPM repository for perl 5.6.x and 5.8.x -- I take requests (README).
