V version 0.14

This module uses stolen code from Module::Info to find the location and version of the specified module(s). It prints them and exit()s.

It works by definening import() and is based on an idea from Michael Schwern on the perl5-porters list. See the discussion

$ perl -MV=CPAN

or if you want more than one package

$ perl -MV=CPAN,V


To install this module type the following commands:

  • perl Makefile.PL
  • make test
  • make install


This module requires no other modules or libraries (exept Test::More for the test-suite).
