in reply to wanted: project outline module

Eclipse/EPIC can provide some of that during development, but I believe its only for the current file with the Outline view. I don't think you can get a project Outline, which is a shame. I think Komodo can do a project outline with its code browser, but I don't use Komodo myself, so not much help there.

Any project of sufficient size probably deserves a UML model though. A class diagram is my personal favorite UML diagram, and it provides exactly the information you're looking for, plus some, such as class attributes. Class diagrams really are the kind of big chart you want printed on your whiteboard or wall, so you can really think about what you're doing and where you're going.

Some UML editors will generate code stubs for you as you model. Eclipse has good modeling functionality, but it won't generate Perl code last I checked. It will automatically generate diagrams from the model though. It's a lot of work, but well worth it.

IMO, Perl is a language that lends itself to automatic code generation at runtime, but not so much during development time. :)
