perldoc -k keyword
Message ID:
I'm tempted to write a -k option for perldoc that would search for its 
argument in all pods in the installation tree and print out section names 
and matching lines a la grep.  I know one can write an alias involving find 
and grep to do this but it's a matter of convenience.  Sound like a good 
thing or not?
