File/ states​:
  See also the script C<pfind> on CPAN for a nice application of this

cpan> i /pfind/
No objects found of any type for argument /pfind/

  side note​: why do I get the following warning if I repeat the command again​:
  Use of uninitialized value in pattern match (m//) at /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.00563/ line 1629.

Anyway, by searching the perl5-porters archive I found that
the author was ilya@​ (Ilya Zakharevich)
and I was able to locate it under

1) Why did the interactive CPAN module not find it with the "i" command?

2) perhaps the File/ pod documentation should be changed to
  mention a more complete path to the mentioned pfind script ?

3) Is there a way to use the CPAN module to search in indices/find-ls.gz ?
