corelist - a commandline frontend to Module::CoreList
See Module::CoreList for one.
corelist [-a|-d] <ModuleName> | /<ModuleRegex>/ [<ModuleVersion>] ...
corelist [-v <PerlVersion>] [ <ModuleName> | /<ModuleRegex>/ ] ...
lists all versions of the given module (or the matching modules, in case you
used a module regexp) in the perls Module::CoreList knows about.
corelist -a utf8
utf8 was first released with perl 5.006
finds the first perl version where a module has been released by
date, and not by version number (as is the default).
- -? or -help
help! help! help! to see more help, try --man.
all of the help
lists all of the perl release versions we got the CoreList for.
If you pass a version argument (value of $], like 5.00503 or 5.008008),
you get a list of all the modules and their respective versions.
(If you have the version module, you can also use new-style version numbers,
In module filtering context, it can be used as Perl version filter.
As a special case, if you specify the module name Unicode, you'll get
the version number of the Unicode Character Database bundled with the
requested perl versions.
