Description: Run this script from the perllib directory, where vendor_perl and site_perl directories reside. (in my case it's /usr/lib/perl5) The script will output the modules (.pm files) located in both subdirs. The branch (site_perl or vendor_perl) will be output for the older module (which you thus might want to remove).
#!/usr/bin/perl

Run this script from the perllib directory, where vendor_perl and site
+_perl
directories reside. (in my case it's /usr/lib/perl5)
The script will output the modules (.pm files) located in both subdirs
+.

The branch (site_perl or vendor_perl) will be output for the older mod
+ule
(which you thus might want to remove).

Set $PERLVERSION to whatever you have in both site_perl and vendor_per
+l.

# returns a list of files that are in these dirs
# in both branches (the branch prefix is truncated)

    Rather than inventing your own technique for determining versions, use battle-tested code:

    perl -MExtUtils::MakeMaker -le 'print MM->parse_version(shift)' /path/to/module.pm

    That is likely to be much more robust. Otherwise, ++, a very nice hack.
