in thread removing a perl mod thats been manually installed

Perl's core utilities don't include a module uninstaller.

:) sure they do cpanp -u MODULE ... # uninstall module(s)

Before that you could find the .packlist yourself and delete the files (or using ExtUtils::Installed)

But apparently thats "very unsafe" because you don't know if another module claims the same files ... much ado about nothing IMHO, make the decision for yourself:) Uninstalling perl module - nntp.perl.org

My research


cpanp u Module says How to uninstall module of perl
cpanp u Module says Uninstalling Perl modules
pm-uninstall Module::Name and cpanp u Module::Name says How to uninstall Perl Module?
ExtUtils::Installed says removed faq item "How do I remove installed Perl modules?" howto uninstall a package/module
WebMin allows uninstall says howto uninstall a package/module
blah blah ExtUtils::Installed/.packlist ... its what they all use says uninstalling modules
run "make uninstall" from Makefile.PL directory Uninstall module

    Thanks for the followup and setting the record straight. Worse than being wrong is propagating incorrect information, so the correction is appreciated.
