I'd like to give instructions on how to run a perl script on Windows. This will ask to use ActivePerl, which the user should install from the download page. Then I may have to ask the user to install a module with the perl package manager (ppm). More likely I don't have to ask them because the modules necessary are shipped with ActivePerl and installed with it by default. So where can I see the list of modules that are always installed?
No, Module-CoreList doesn't do that, because that module lists the modules distributed with perl vanilla, not the ones in ActivePerl. I also can't just look at the modules currently installed on my machine or the documentation, because I've installed extra modules since installing ActivePerl. Does perhaps ActivePerl's online documentation work? Does that list only the modules installed by default? Or also modules from their ppm repository?
