Things like this are frequently done in conjunction with CPAN lookups. Many people don't realize that the CPAN module itself can be used in your own scripts. You can extend lachoy's example a lot further by using CPAN, at the expense of a lot of time:
#!/usr/bin/perl use CPAN; printf("%-20s %10s %10s\n", "Module", "Installed", "CPAN"); foreach $a (@ARGV) { foreach $mod (CPAN::Shell->expand("Module", $a)){ printf("%-20s %10s %10s %s\n", $mod->id, $mod->inst_version eq "undef" || !defined($mod->inst_version) ? "-" : $mod->inst_version, $mod->cpan_version eq "undef" || !defined($mod->cpan_version) ? "-" : $mod->cpan_version, $mod->uptodate ? "" : "*" ); } }
Running with arguments: DBI /DBD::/
Module Installed CPAN DBI 1.13 1.14 * DBD::ADO 0.14 1.17 * DBD::ASAny - 1.09 * DBD::Adabas - 0.2003 * DBD::Altera - - * DBD::CSV - 0.1024 *
...etc. Though if all you're interested in is the installed version of modules, you're FAR better off going with lachoy's script, since the code above will rely upon CPAN data, which will require time to fetch, extract and browse.

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • 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).
