FUNCTIONS

run

The main function, which is called by the perlzonji program.

try_module

Takes as argument the name of a module, tries to load that module and executes the formatter, giving that module as an argument. If loading the module fails, this subroutine does nothing.

execute

Executes the given command using exec(). In debug mode, it also prints the command before executing it.

find_matches

Takes a word and returns the matches for that word. It's in a separate function to separate logic from presentation so other programs can use this module as well.

OPTIONS

Options can be shortened according to "Case and abbreviations" in Getopt::Long.

--perldoc-command, -c

Specifies the POD formatter/pager to delegate to. Default is perldoc annopod from AnnoCPAN::Perldoc is a better alternative.

--debug

Prints the whole command before executing it.

--dry-run, -n

Just print the command that would be executed; don't actually execute it.

--help, -h, -?

Prints a brief help message and exits.

--man, -m

Prints the manual page and exits.
