Whereis in Perl

peetm asked
Last Modified: 2008-07-22
I'd be interested to see a whereis type program written in Perl.  Whereis - as in - whereis 'this' file along my PC's path.

I've written various version in Ruby, PHP C, Java etc, and would like to compare those against a Perl implmentation [as well as to other languages].

Anyone fancy starting me off?
