in thread what would you like to see in perl5.12?

No, I meant search @INC, like:

$ echo 1 > Foo::Bar $ strace perl -e'require "Foo::Bar"' 2>&1 |grep Foo execve("/usr/bin/perl", ["perl", "-erequire \"Foo::Bar\""], [/* 38 var +s */]) = 0 stat64("/etc/perl/Foo::Bar", 0xbffcabac) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or +directory) stat64("/usr/local/lib/perl/5.8.8/Foo::Bar", 0xbffcabac) = -1 ENOENT ( +No such file or directory) stat64("/usr/local/share/perl/5.8.8/Foo::Bar", 0xbffcabac) = -1 ENOENT + (No such file or directory) stat64("/usr/lib/perl5/Foo::Bar", 0xbffcabac) = -1 ENOENT (No such fil +e or directory) stat64("/usr/share/perl5/Foo::Bar", 0xbffcabac) = -1 ENOENT (No such f +ile or directory) stat64("/usr/lib/perl/5.8/Foo::Bar", 0xbffcabac) = -1 ENOENT (No such +file or directory) stat64("/usr/share/perl/5.8/Foo::Bar", 0xbffcabac) = -1 ENOENT (No suc +h file or directory) stat64("/usr/local/lib/site_perl/Foo::Bar", 0xbffcabac) = -1 ENOENT (N +o such file or directory) stat64("./Foo::Bar", {st_mode=S_IFREG|0644, st_size=2, ...}) = 0 open("./Foo::Bar", O_RDONLY|O_LARGEFILE) = 3

    The change I propose would have require search for Foo/Bar.pm and Foo/Bar.pmc when supplied "Foo::Bar" for argument, just like when it's supplied Foo::Bar for argument.

    The only thing it would break is the ability to require modules with :: in the file name. That's extremely unlikely since it would break on Windows and old Macs.
