    Very impressive, I tried to see how long I could do it for but only managed 18 days, hundreds is hard to imagine.

    twin% perl -MFile::Which -E 'say $_ for which("perl")'

    /usr/bin/perl

    Which may be useful for some applications, I've needed that capability at times in the past. Also the IPC::Cmd variant seems to also use ExtUtils::MakeMaker (as with Devel::CheckBin) for the heavy lifting, so it is fine if you don't mind pulling all of that in.

    Reading comprehension is key. Reading the documentation I see you can get the list context version from IPC::Cmd too, but you need to set a global variable:

    twin% perl -MIPC::Cmd=can_run -E '$IPC::Cmd::INSTANCES=1; say $_ for can_run("perl")'
    /home/user/perl5/perlbrew/perls/perl-5.20.2t/bin/perl
    /usr/bin/perl
    /usr/bin/X11/perl
