    If you have a web server on your machine, check out hacker's MoDetails v0.2. Here is the relevant code if you don't have a web server or just want to see the output via command line:
    use strict; use ExtUtils::Installed; my $inst = ExtUtils::Installed->new(); print $_,$/ for $inst->modules();

    Hi suresh,

    $ perldoc perllocal will give you all the modules that were installed through the standard procedure:

    perl Makefile.pl make make test # ;-) make install # this updates perllocal.pod
    But you will miss the "standard" mods that come with Perl.

    (Update: fixed stupid typo in user node number)

    Cheers, Joe

      Thanks Joe!!!

    I have this code snippit in my archive of useful stuff. It originated from somebody else's post on perlmonks, but I'm not sure who.

    !#/usr/local/bin/perl use CPAN; for my $mod (CPAN::Shell->expand("Module","/./")){ next unless $mod->inst_file; print $mod->id, '(', $mod->inst_version, ') '; unless($mod->uptodate()) { print "\t\t#( V. ",$mod->cpan_version, " available on CPAN +)"; } print "\n"; }

    I seem to recall a product called "perldiver" which does this. Aimed at the end user and possibly non-free - and for all I know, incredibly insecure etc. - but take a look.

    This is not exactly what you asked (it's not Perl), but here's a piece of shell abuse that does it the hard way:
    for path in `perl -e 'print join "\n", @INC'`; do find $path -name "*.pm"|perl -pe "s|$path/||;s|/|::|g;s/\.pm$//;" done |uniq

    CU
    Robartes- demonstrating that a combination of shell and Perl can be even gnarlier that either one alone :)
