    The batch file (equivalent to bart's) that I'm using as a result of this thread is:
    @echo off perl -le "require %1; print %1->VERSION"
    As mentioned above, loading the module with '-M' or 'use' won't work with some modules - eg Inline::C, Inline::CPP, Parse::RecDescent. With bart's version.bat I get:
    C:\_32>version Parse::RecDescent Usage: perl -MLocalTest - <grammarfile> <classname> C:\_32>version Inline::C It is invalid to use 'Inline::C' directly. Please consult the Inline documentation for more information. at -e line 0 BEGIN failed--compilation aborted. C:\_32>version Inline::CPP It is invalid to use 'Inline::CPP' directly. Please consult the Inline documentation for more information. at -e line 0 BEGIN failed--compilation aborted.
    Cheers,
    Rob
