Re: [PATCH] [perl #18055] Clarify for bug resolution.
Message ID:
It was Wednesday, April 23, 2003 when Ronald J Kimball took the soap box, saying:
: Would you consider changing it to say "double quotes should be used instead
: of single quotes"?  I fear "the quotes should be doubled" is ambiguous; it
: could mean either '' or ".

You beat me to it, I was on my way.  Here is the full patch once
again, and hopefully for the last time. :-)

 To find out I<all> modules installed on your system, including
 those without documentation or outside the standard release,
-just do this:
+just use the following command (double quotes should be used instead     
+of single quotes).
-    % find `perl -Te 'print "@INC"'` -name '*.pm' -print
+    % perl -MFile::Find=find -MFile::Spec::Functions -Tlwe \
+      'find { wanted => sub { print canonpath $_ if /\.pm\z/ },
+      no_chdir => 1 }, @INC'
 (The -T is here to prevent '.' from being listed in @INC.)
 They should all have their own documentation installed and accessible
