The reason is that Perl modules have name spaces, and the structure of these name spaces are reflected in directory structures; the "File" namespace is for modules deal with files and filesystems, and "Find" is one of the modules in that namespace. Thus, when you say use File::Find, perl searches for File/Find.pm in the directories in the @INC array. If you look in the directory where Find.pm resides, you'll see that there are all sorts of other files with names like Copy.pm, and at the top of every one of them will be a line that says package File::[filename];, where "filename" is the name of the file you're looking at minus its ".pm" extension.
