Help regarding modules


  Is there any way i can find all the modules installed in local perl directory. Actually i'm writing a utility to download a module and install it, but i dont want to install the modules already present, how can i check the modules existing in my local perl directory ? is there any reserved array or variable for this ? Please help me ASAP. Thanks for your time.

Thanks & Regards

RE: Help regarding modules

use find `perl -e 'print "@INC"'` -name '*.pm' -print
will list all *.pm installed

RE: Help regarding modules

Save yourself re-inventing the wheel - there's already a module that will do this for you, and it's included in the recent releases of perl.  The module is "CPAN", and to see the documentation run perldoc ::CPAN.

To run the installation module interactively, run perl -MCPAN -e shell, then type "h" for help.

Hope this helps.
