This is very neat. I have made a patch (see below) that:

  • Makes it ignore POD lines.
  • Makes it deal with multi-line @ISA declarations such as:
    Of course, the only foolproof way to get @ISA would be to load the package and examine its value, but this seems to work OK.
For an example of a graph generated by this program, see this graph, which corresponds to the implementation of this project. :-)


Here's the patch:
