in thread Find perl module version from command-line

The extra output is being generated by the CPAN module itself. I checked out the code on mine and I don't see any conditionals or anything that could be passed to supress that output. So, the simple answer is to grep for what you want or use perlmodver.pl CPAN | tail +5 because I don't think there's much you can do from the perl side that doesn't require putting more effort into it than it's worth.
