Perl files dictionary

[ #19650 ]

I want to create a dictionary of Perl files: what they are, who creates them, what they do, and so on. for instance, MANIFEST lists the files that should be in the distribution and is used by MakeMaker. Not only do I get to see some of the dark corners of Perl I don't know about, but people new to Perl can figure out what some of these files are (e.g. do you know why pm_to_blib or .packlist do or who created them?).

This has been a low priority project for a long time, but I've decided to simply make my list available and hope a lot of people send in file names and details I have not listed or don't know about.

This is going to continue to be a low priority project, but I'll collect names and details. Eventually I might have something to show from it.
