in reply to a list of functions within a pm

If your package only contains subs (no package variables), you can just use the package's symbol table:
package foo; sub one { return 1 }; sub two { return 2 }; sub subs { no strict; return keys %foo::; }
You'll also get a BEGIN entry (at least, with 5.6.1 I did).

    There's no guarantee that methods for that package have been defined outside the .pm file. There's also no guarantee that the .pm file doesn't contain more than one package. Granted both are less than elegant, but still possible.
