dh-make-perl --locate Foo::Bar

[ #40273 ]

I didn't know about this easy way to locate Perl modules in Debian packages.

$ dh-make-perl --locate Foo::Bar
Using cached Contents from Fri Mar 26 10:25:51 2010
Foo::Bar is not found in any Debian package

$ dh-make-perl --locate Moose::Meta::Class
Using cached Contents from Fri Mar 26 10:25:51 2010
Moose::Meta::Class is in libmoose-perl package

$ dh-make-perl --locate Test::More
Using cached Contents from Fri Mar 26 10:25:51 2010
Test::More is in Perl core (package perl) since 5.6.2

So there is a ready made solution how to locate Perl modules in Debian packages. The '--locate' option is in Squeeze (testing) version of dh-make-perl or in the source repositiory.
