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
