3.1.1. Where to find a module

A module is a separate file that may contain one or more different namespaces. That file is found in a place that corresponds to the module's name. To find the filename of the module relative to the script's directory, replace every :: with a slash and add ".pm" to the name of the last component.

For instance: the MyModule module will be found in the file "MyModule.pm"; the Hello::World module will be found in the file "World.pm" under the Hello sub-directory; etc.
