If the module was installed in a normal fashion (perl Makefile.PL ...), it should've left a .packlist file.

Then you just use ExtUtils::Installed (you could use File::Find, but why go through the trouble when somebody already done it)

use ExtUtils::Installed; my $inst = ExtUtils::Installed->new(); print "$_\n" for $inst->files('CGI'); =head1 on my machine, I get C:\Perl\lib\CGI\Util.pm C:\Perl\lib\CGI\Cookie.pm C:\Perl\lib\CGI.pm C:\Perl\lib\CGI\Push.pm C:\Perl\lib\CGI\Pretty.pm C:\Perl\lib\CGI\Fast.pm C:\Perl\lib\CGI\Carp.pm C:\Perl\lib\CGI\Switch.pm C:\Perl\lib\CGI\Apache.pm =cut # and now for the "deletion" part print "unlinking ", unlink( $inst->files('CGI') );
update:

Hmm, works just fine for me on various perls/systems, what exactly did you try, and what version of ExtUtils::Packlist/ExtUtils::Installed do you have?

How did you install Image::Magick?

I have used CPAN to install modules and tested this, and it all works out as expected. I suspect one of the ExtUtils modules you're using is messed up. Seeing how you're still getting a file list, a workaround is easy (use File::Find to locate those files in @INC and acquire absolute paths).

  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
