            use App::whichpm 'which_pm';
            my ($filename, $version) = which_pm('App::whichpm');
            my $filename = App::whichpm::find('App::whichpm');

    from shell:

            whichpm App::whichpm
            whichpm Universe::ObservableUniverse::Filament::SuperCluster::Cluster::Group::Galaxy::Arm::Bubble::InterstellarCloud::SolarSystem::Earth

    The similar function can be achieved via:

            perldoc -l Some::Module
            perl -MSome::Module -le 'print $INC{"Some/Module.pm"}'
            perl -MSome::Module -le 'print Some::Module->VERSION'
            pmpath Some::Module
            pmvers Some::Module

EXPORTS
  which_pm
    same as find only exported under `which_pm' name.

FUNCTIONS
  find($module_name)

    In scalar context returns filename corresponding to `$module_name'. In
