Changes for version v2.2.0 - 2018-03-15

  • RT fixes are for issues 82034, 84443, 121522, 122210, and 122212.
  • Updated Changes file to include v2.1.2 changes.
  • Fix pmfunc to complain about missing functions.
  • Fix pmfunc test to use an example that is (still) a function (uses Cwd::chdir instead of the obsolete Cwd::getcwd).
  • Fix pmfunc POD to use an example that is (still) a function.
  • Add pmfunc tests for function signature and function body.
  • Fix podpath to detect POD in the file, in case the .pm file is found before the .pod file.
  • Fix faqpods for Fedora, which can put new FAQs in the $Config{'vendorlib'} directory instead.
  • Fix pminst to follow symlinks.
  • Fix podgrep to once again accept options (broken when pmtools started using 'use strict').
  • Fix podgrep to eliminate spurious message about Config::Config (which is actually used only once).
  • Added DB() == 1 to Devel::Loaded so you can invoke it like "perl -dLoaded SCRIPT" instead of "perl -MDevel::Loaded SCRIPT".
    • NOTE: These changes mean that pmfunc works after all - the example in the POD was out of date (Cwd::getcwd is no longer a 'sub').
