Description: The first part of the snippet goes at the top of your script.

The second part goes where you want to list the modules and versions. Sample output looks like:

Tk 804.027 Tk::Event 4.015 Tk::Event::IO 4.008 AutoLoader 5.60 DynaLoader 1.05 Tk::Submethods 4.004 Encode::Unicode 1.40
use strict;
use warnings;

BEGIN {our @usedModules; unshift @INC, sub {push @usedModules, [@_]; r
+eturn undef;}}

our @usedModules;

...

my $versions = '';
for (@usedModules) {
   my $name = $_->[1];

   $name =~ s/\..*//;
   $name =~ s|[\\/]|::|g;
   
   my $version = eval{eval "\$$name\::VERSION"};
   $versions .= "$name \t$version\n" if defined $version;
}

print $versions;

    Here is a similar one that runs from the command line.
    #!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; for my $module (@ARGV) { my $version; eval "require $module"; if (not $@) { $version = $module->VERSION; $version = '(unknown)' if not defined $version; } else { $version = '(not installed)'; } printf " %-24s\t%s\n", $module, $version; } __END__ # Sample output. $ perl modver.pl Encode Foo strict Error::Simple Encode 2.10 Foo (not installed) strict 1.03 Error::Simple (unknown)

    And why not give credit to the module authors? See: Acme::Module::Authors (thanks Tatsuhiko ;-)

    All code is usually tested, but rarely trusted.

    Don't forget about perl -d:Modlist script.pl
