in reply to Get list of version for particular CPAN distribution ?

Seems I found a solution
use BackPAN::Index; my $backpan = BackPAN::Index->new; my $dist = $backpan->dist("MIME-Base64"); my $releases = $dist->releases; print join "\n", map { $_->version } $releases->all;
it uses BackPAN however (i.e. includes obsolete versions). But for me it's not a major problem.

[stevieb]: I found that win10 broke a C# library I was using for one project while enhancing tests for a Perl dist, which breaks other Perl dists, and I'm about to throw my hands up on berrybrew. win2k12 broke one thing, win10 breaks something...
