pmvers — print out a module's version


Given one or more module names, show the version number if present. If more than one argument is given, the name of the module will also be printed.  Not all modules define version numbers, however.


    $ pmvers CGI

    $ pmvers IO::Socket Text::Parsewords
    IO::Socket: 1.25
    Text::ParseWords: 3.1

    $ oldperl -S pmvers CGI

    $ filsperl -S pmvers CGI

    $ pmvers Devel::Loaded
    pmvers: unknown version for module `Devel::Loaded'
