NAME

BackPAN::Version::Discover - Figure out exactly which dist versions you have installed

VERSION

Version 0.01

SYNOPSIS

Please note: this module's interface is HIGHLY ALPHA, mainly because I want input from users on how they think it should work. Therefore, this is all subject to change, if only you *tell me what you want* :)

    use BackPAN::Version::Discover;
    
    my $bvd = BackPAN::Version::Discover->new();
    
    # exclude relative dirs and anything under $HOME
    my @dirs = grep { ! /^$ENV{HOME}|^[^\/]/ } @INC;
    
    # this may take some time and use lots of ram and/or CPU
    my $results = $bvd->scan( dirs => \@dirs );
    
    # please let me know if the separate results object is good or bad.
    my @releases = $results->release_paths();
    my
