in reply to CPAN uninstall

Use cpanm. It lets you uninstall modules. Without writing something yourself or just examining your file system nothing springs to mind to list recently installed modules.

Does it matter that there are modules installed that I don't know what they are or what they do?"

If you uninstall a dependency (or a dependency of a dependency) of a module you rely on, expect problems.

    isn't there a perllocal.pod somewhere being updated by cpan?

    perl -le'print map{pack c,($-++?1:13)+ord}split//,ESEL'

      Yes. perldoc perllocal will list all the locally-installed (ie. non-core) modules ordered by time of installation. It should be updated by any installation method including your O/S package manager, cpan, cpanplus, cpanminus, make install, etc.

      Yes! Found it thanks :)
