Re^4: Find perl module version from command-line
in thread Find perl module version from command-line
How about ack '^\s*\$VERSION'? See App::ack.
Also, instead of using Excel, you might want to use sort and diff to find the differences between the machines.
Thanks. I will try and see if I can get that. App::Ack is not in my current PERL install. All I have in App is something called Prove. We have this weird convoluted process to get files from the Internet to the private systems.
App:Prove is part of the Test-Harness suite. Test::Harness itself has been bundled with Perl since Perl 5.0 (i.e. almost 20 years), but the App::Prove module is a later addition (since Perl 5.10.1).
