NAME

corelist - a commandline frontend to Module::CoreList  

DESCRIPTION

See Module::CoreList for one.  

SYNOPSIS

    corelist -v
    corelist [-a|-d] <ModuleName> | /<ModuleRegex>/ [<ModuleVersion>] ...
    corelist [-v <PerlVersion>] [ <ModuleName> | /<ModuleRegex>/ ] ...

 

OPTIONS

-a
lists all versions of the given module (or the matching modules, in case you used a module regexp) in the perls Module::CoreList knows about.

corelist -a utf8

corelist | example

utf8 was first released with perl 5.006 5.006 undef 5.006001 undef 5.006002 undef 5.007003 1.00 5.008 1.00 5.008001 1.02 5.008002 1.02 5.008003 1.02 5.008004 1.03 5.008005 1.04 5.008006 1.04 5.008007 1.05 5.008008 1.06 5.009 1.02 5.009001 1.02 5.009002 1.04 5.009003 1.06
-d
finds the first perl version where a module has been released by date, and not by version number (as is the default).
-? or -help
help! help! help! to see more help, try --man.
-man
all of the help
-v
lists all of the perl release versions we got the CoreList for.

If you pass a version argument (value of $], like 5.00503 or 5.008008), you get a list of all the modules and their respective versions. (If you have the "version" module, you can also use new-style version numbers, like 5.8.8.)

In module filtering context, it can be used as Perl version filter.

As a special case, if you specify the module name "Unicode", you'll get the version number of the Unicode Character Database bundled with the requested perl versions.
