What do you have in mind format-wise? Note that most modules and packages
are sufficiently complex that trying to jam the entire api into a one-line
summary is going to provide fairly meaningless output. Bop on over to your
local HTML lib docs and try
egrep -l dircmp *.html
On a 2.2.3 system I see
Restricting to *module*.html helps. "sort" is even worse:
% egrep -l sort *module*.html
I realize that's not quite what you were asking. If you could provide a
more detailed example perhaps someone can make some more on-target
