FAQ

What is the purpose of this distribution? Haven't other utilities existed?

For example, mpath in Module::Path distribution, mversion in Module::Version distribution, etc.

True. The main point of these utilities is shell tab completion, to save typing.

In shell completion, why do you use / (slash) instead of :: (double colon) as it should be?

If you type module name which doesn't contain any ::, / will be used as namespace separator. Otherwise if you already type ::, it will use ::.

Colon is problematic because by default it is a word breaking character in bash. This means, in this command:

 % pmpath Text:<tab>

bash is completing a new word (empty string), and in this:

 % pmpath Text::ANSITabl<tab>

bash is completing ANSITabl instead of what we want Text::ANSITabl.

The solution is to use quotes, e.g.

 % pmpath "Text:<tab>
 % pmpath 'Text:<tab>

or, use /.
