in reply to find out method name from the reference

Could Sub::Identify help?

From the Synopsis:

use Sub::Identify ':all'; my $subname = sub_name( $some_coderef );

    Even better.

    The Devel::Peek::CvGV() method is a little vague since the man page mentions that it returns "one of" the globs associated with a subroutine reference. I'm not sure what others might exist, but this would certainly imply that there might be more than one.

    The Sub::Identify module is based on B, which seems like it's a little more appropriate for my use. Plus, it's a little more flexible in exactly what I get back.
