in thread Find installed Perl modules matching a regular expression

it would be necessary to perform a find on all directories

I don't think that is neccessary. perllocal.pod lives in @INC, and when you install modules (with ExtUtils::MakeMaker), perllocal.pod gets updated, and the directory mtime gets updated.

Since Module::Build doesn't update perllocal (yet), and neither do ppm or apt-get..., after installing a module an admin might touch @INC

$atime = $mtime = time; utime $atime, $mtime, @INC;

Additional directories to check might be

perl -V:installbin -V:installscript -V:installsitebin
