CORELIST(1) Perl Programmers Reference Guide CORELIST(1)

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

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", youll get the version number of the Unicode Character Database bundled with the requested perl versions.

EXAMPLES $ corelist File::Spec

File::Spec was first released with perl 5.005

$ corelist File::Spec 0.83

File::Spec 0.83 was released with perl 5.007003

$ corelist File::Spec 0.89

File::Spec 0.89 was not in CORE (or so I think)

$ corelist File::Spec::Aliens

File::Spec::Aliens was not in CORE (or so I think)

$ corelist /IPC::Open/

IPC::Open2 was first released with perl 5

IPC::Open3 was first released with perl 5

$ corelist /MANIFEST/i

ExtUtils::Manifest was first released with perl 5.001

$ corelist /Template/

/Template/ has no match in CORE (or so I think)

$ corelist -v 5.8.8 B

B 1.09_01

$ corelist -v 5.8.8 /^B::/

B::Asmdata 1.01 B::Assembler 0.07 B::Bblock 1.02_01 B::Bytecode 1.01_01 B::C 1.04_01 B::CC 1.00_01 B::Concise 0.66 B::Debug 1.02_01 B::Deparse 0.71 B::Disassembler 1.05 B::Lint 1.03 B::O 1.00 B::Showlex 1.02 B::Stackobj 1.00 B::Stash 1.00 B::Terse 1.03_01 B::Xref 1.01
