Linux Commands Examples

A great documentation place for Linux commands


a commandline frontend to Module::CoreList


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

add an example, a script, a trick and tips

See Module::CoreList for one.



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

      5.009002   1.04
      5.009003   1.06


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.


all of the help


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.
