Hello rumpumpel1,

you probably mean that TeamForge6 will use many other modules and you want to spot where login sub is located?

For sure there are safer method, safer in respect to what i propose here, but..

Symbol table has the information you want. Dealing with that is somehow dangerous but some module, for debugging task, can be helpful.

For example Devel::Symdump can be used to inspect symbol table. The following oneliner search the whole symbol table, recursively and in any package for a function given in as $ARGV[0]

perl -MDevel::Symdump -E "package A{sub asub{1}}package B::B{sub bsub{ +1}};; $sym=Devel::Symdump->rnew('main'); for $p($sym->packages){ for ($sym->functions($p)){die qq($_ found in package $p) if $_ +eq $p.'::'.$ARGV[0]} }" bsub B::B::bsub found in package B::B at -e line 1.

PS sligthly modified the above to show that it recurse package names

I have many evil links about symbol table at my homenode

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:

  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
