        by Ilya Zakharevich

        CPerl is major mode for editing perl files. Also included in
        latest Emacs, but newest version is at Ilya's site. Note that
        the directrory at CPAN is out of date:

        Compared to default `perl-mode' that comes with Emacs, this
        one has more features.

        o   Separate `tiperl-pod-view-mode' for jumping topics and pages
            forward and backward in *pod* buffer.

        o   Update `$VERSION' variable with YYYY.MMDD on save.
        o   Load source code into Emacs, like
        o   Prepare script (version numbering) and Upload it to PAUSE

            Perl Module (.pm)

    TinyIgrep -- Perl Code browsing and easy grepping

        [TinyIgrep is included in Tiny Tools Kit]

        To grep from all installed Perl modules, define database to
        TinyIgrep. There is example file emacs-rc-tinyigrep.el that shows
        how to set up dattabases for Perl5, Perl4 whatever you have

        TinyIgrep calls Igrep.el to to do the search, You can adjust
        recursive grep options, set search case sensitivity, add user grep
        options etc.

        You can find latest `igrep.el' module at
        <gnu.emacs.sources">> The
        maintainer is Jefin Rodgers <>.

    TinyCompile -- To Browse grep results in Emacs *compile* buffer

        TinyCompile is a minor mode for *compile* buffer from where
        you can collapse unwanted lines or shorten file URLs:

            /asd/asd/asd/asd/ads/as/da/sd/as/as/asd/file1:NNN: MATCHED TEXT
            /asd/asd/asd/asd/ads/as/da/sd/as/as/asd/file2:NNN: MATCHED TEXT


            cd /asd/asd/asd/asd/ads/as/da/sd/as/as/asd/
