in thread Can I get a -S switch that doesn't care about the execute bit?

It should be fairly trivial, simply locate the point where -x is tested, and add conditional (!SvTRUE( get_sv("sx::y"))

In file util.c in function Perl_find_script

if (S_ISREG(PL_statbuf.st_mode) && cando(S_IRUSR,TRUE,&PL_statbuf) #if !defined(DOSISH) && !SvTRUE( get_sv("sx::y") && cando(S_IXUSR,TRUE,&PL_statbuf) #endif ) { xfound = tmpbuf; /* bingo! */ break; }
and accompanying badly named pragma
package sx::y; $sx::y = $VERSION = 0.01; 1;

when you recompile perl, use as perl -Msx::y -S foo

Untested, so not in patch form

    Of course the pragma should be properly named 'sexy.pm'.
