I also noticed that if a module has a corresponding POD file (for example: and POSIX.pod) the description is in the POD file and won't get picked up at all. I applied this patch which seems to fix this (it also prevents from appearing twice in the resulting list):
202,204c202,206 < return unless /\.p(?:m|od)\z/; < s/\.pod\z/.pm/; # if it's POD, parse t +he corresponding code < return if not -f; --- > return unless -f and /\A(.+)\.pm\z/; > my $module = $1; > my $version = get_module_version( "$mo" ) || -e "$module.pod" && get_module_version( + "$module.pod" ); > my $desc = get_module_description( +"$", $opt_limit ) || -e "$module.pod" && get_module_descript +ion( "$module.pod", $opt_limit ); > 207,209c209,211 < get_module_version( $_ ), < get_module_description( $_, $o +pt_limit ), < $opt_path ? $File::Find::name +: undef, --- > $version, > $desc, > $opt_path ? $File::Find::name +: undef

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:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • 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.
