Standard perl modules

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

I am writing some code that will be ported to different unix platforms. I know they will all have perl installed. I just don't know what modules are installed with a "pure perl" install. Is there somewhere in the perldocs or other documentation that would list what comes with a standard install. I was just wondering before I went ahead and tried to reinvent wheels.

    The exact list varies (or, more accurately, increases) from release to release, but the list for your version will be in the perlmodlib manual page that came with your distribution.

    On CPAN, browsing through the distributions, you'll get for each distrib, the modules included.

    Like here for example...
