This is a like the Unix command grep but instead of specifying filenames, you specify module names or prefixes. The utility will search module source files from Perl's
# Find pre-increment in all Perl module files % pmgrep '\+\+\$' # Find some pattern in all Data::Sah::Coerce::* modules (note ** wildcard for recursing) % pmgrep 'return ' Data::Sah::Coerce::**
