NAME

Module::InstalledVersion - Find out what version of a module is installed

SYNOPSIS

    use Module::InstalledVersion;
    my $m = new Module::InstalledVersion 'Foo::Bar';
    print "Version is $m->{version}\n";
    print "Directory is $m->{dir}\n";

DESCRIPTION

This module finds out what version of another module is installed, without running that module. It uses the same regexp technique used by Extutils::MakeMaker for figuring this out.

Note that it won't work if the module you're looking at doesn't set $VERSION properly. This is true of far too many CPAN modules.
