in reply to Checking for an installed Module's version.

If the module isa Exporter- or, at least, if it behaves like most CPAN modules I'm familiar with- you can usually find the version at the command line by:
$ perl -MModule::Name -e 'print $Module::Name::VERSION,"\n"';

Of course, if you're using ExtUtils::MakeMaker to write the make file, the WriteMakefile method has a parameter called 'PREREQ_PM' that lets you specify the modules you need as well as their minimum versions.

Hope this helps!
