Need some wiki functionality w/o large overhead

hesco has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

A piece of the web application I'm now building will include some workflow control for collaboration on a document, before its release. It would be sweet to add some wiki-like version control and difference viewing tools into the mix and I went looking for appropriate tools on cpan. But i /wiki/ returned over 500 hits. I just need those two functions, not a lot of additional overhead for this application. That leaves me with two questions:

(1) How can one narrow a command line cpan search;

but more to the point . . .
(2) Any recommendations from the wiki-experienced of what modules would offer me those functions?

All advice appreciated.

    Kwiki is written in perl and very easy to get up and running. CPAN page

      Just to be clear, I'm not looking for a wiki to install but for a module or two that would provide two small areas of functionality I associate with a wiki:

    • visually present the diff between any two versions of a document
    • tracking versions of a document

      I'd appreciate ideas of how I can do that with __minimal__ overhead. I'd rather not glom on an entire wiki packge for just two small features.

        Then you're focusing on the wrong thing. You want modules that will diff the files for you and an interface to a revision control system:
