how can i list the installed Perlmodules an my Computer?


RE: List installed Perlmodules

This is the code that I use on our servers -


use strict;
use File::Find;

my $count = 0;

my (@mod, %done, $dir);
find(\&get, grep { -r and -d } @INC);
@mod = grep(!$done{$_}++, @mod);
foreach $dir (sort { length $b <=> length $a } @INC) {
   foreach (@mod) { next if s,^\Q$dir,,; }
print "Content-type: text/html\n\n";

print "<HTML><HEAD><TITLE>Installed Perl Modules</TITLE></HEAD><BODY bgcolor='#c0c0c0'>";
print "<h3 align='center'>Perl Modules Installed Thor</h3>";

# list table heading
 print "<table border=1 bgcolor='#999999' align='center'>";
     print "<tr><th>Perl Module Number</th><th>Perl Module Name</th></tr>\n";

foreach (@mod) { s,^/(.*)\.pm$,$1,; s,/,::,g;

print "<tr align='center'>";
print "<td>$count</td>";
print "<td>$_</td>";
print "</tr>\n";


print "</table>";
print "Total : ($#mod modules!)\n\n";
sub get { /^.*\.pm$/ && /$ARGV[0]/i && push @mod, $File::Find::name; }

Hope this helps !


RE: List installed Perlmodules

if you're on doze, and using activestate theres an option in PPM to list installed modules, I believe the same exists in the CPAN shell

It's important in life to always strike a happy medium, so if you see someone with a crystal ball, and a smile on their face ...

RE: List installed Perlmodules

Thanks for the support,
The script is exactly that wat i am looking for.

Thank You


RE: List installed Perlmodules

Here's a way to do it if a text dump is okay with you.

use ExtUtils::Installed;

my $instmod = ExtUtils::Installed->new();

foreach my $module ($instmod->modules()) {
        my $version = $instmod->version($module) || "???";
        print "$module -- $version\n";
