    Well I was looking for a command-line solution, which could also work within the debugger...

    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' |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...

    Cheers Rolf
