So whats new about pod and X<>-tag? How to check current development?
FWIW, Pod::POM::Web and others of the type, as well as App::Perldoc::Search, support searching
And after investigating Pod::Man I discovered that the X-tags (and more) ARE actually (almost correctly) exported to man's *roff- format.
lanx@nc10-ubuntu:/tmp$ grep 'X<qr>' perlop.pod
X<qr> X<s> X<tr> X<'> X<''> X<"> X<""> X<//> X<`> X<``> X<<< << >>>
X<qr> X</i> X</m> X</o> X</s> X</x> X</p>
lanx@nc10-ubuntu:/tmp$ grep 'Xref' perlop.man |grep qr
.IX Xref "operator, quote operator, quote-like q qq qx qw m qr s tr '
+'' "" """" ` `` << escape sequence escape"
.IX Xref "qr i m o s x p"
So it's more a question about finding an appropriate viewer/pager to be able to jump into the correct line.
Identifying the file is no big deal...
