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 -

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
