V - Print version of the specified module(s).


    $ perl -MV=V

or if you want more than one

    $ perl -MV=CPAN,V

Can now also be used as a light-weight module for getting versions of modules without loading them:

    BEGIN { $V::NO_EXIT = 1 }
    require V;

    printf "%s has version '%s'\n", "V", V::get_version( "V" );


This module uses stolen code from Module::Info to find the location and version of the specified module(s). It prints them and exit()s.

It defines import() and is based on an idea from Michael Schwern on the perl5-porters list. See the discussion:
