NAME
       pmfunc - cat out a function from a module

DESCRIPTION
       Given a fully-qualified function, this program opens up the file and
       attempts to cat out the source for that function.

EXAMPLES
           $ pmfunc Cwd::getcwd
           sub getcwd
           {
               abs_path('.');
           }

RESTRICTIONS
       Only subroutines that are defined in the normal fashion are seen, since
       a simple pattern-match is what does the extraction.  Those loaded other
       ways, such as via AUTOLOAD, typeglob aliasing, or in an "eval", will
       all necessarily be missed.

       This is mostly here for people who are too lazy to type

           sed '/^sub getcwd/,/}/p' `pmpath Cwd`
       or
           perl -ne 'print if /^sub\s+getcwd\b/ .. /}/' `pmpath Cwd`
