MVERSION(1)	      User Contributed Perl Documentation	   MVERSION(1)

NAME
       mversion	- Program for querying Perl module versions

VERSION
       version 0.201

SYNOPSIS
       This program shows you the version of a module or several modules, in a
       comfortable manner.

	   mversion Dancer
	   mversion --dev --full This That Another
	   mversion -q -i modules.txt

       In Perl-world, we have many ways	to determine a version of a module.
       You can run "perl -MModule -le'print $Module::Version'",	but once the
       name is very long it becomes tiresome to	write.

       We can try to load the module in	a specific version that	is (hopefully)
       greater than what we already have installed (if at all).	That way we
       purposely inflict an error on the compiler and try to read the error
       msg. "perl -MModule\ 9999".  This does not work on multiple modules at
       once. Some modules even have long version numbers, such as a date, and
       then you	need to	run "perl -MModule\ 9999999999"	which is seriously
       annoying.

       There are a few modules out there that get you the version number of
       other modules but none of them are applications,	nor do they have
       enough options for comfortable day-to-day usage.	This is	where
       "mversion" comes	in.

OPTIONS
       -f, --full
	   This	outputs	both the name and the version of module, instead of
	   just	the version number.

	       mversion	-f ThisModule ThatModule
	       mversion	--full ThisModule ThatModule

       -I, --include DIRECTORY,	-I MORE, -I EVENMORE
	   This	lets you add any number	of directories to include when trying
	   to get a version number. This is very helpful when you're trying to
	   check if the	version	of a module in a specific folder is different
	   than	the default one.

	       # get the version of ThisModule
	       mversion	ThisModule

	       # get the version of ThisModule from directory dev_releases
	       mversion	-I dev_releases	ThisModule

	   You can include more	directories by repeating the flag and argument
	   again. There	is no limit to how many	directories you	can include.

       -i, --input FILE
	   This	reads a	list of	modules	from a file.

	       mversion	-i my_modules.txt
	       mversion	--input	my_modules.txt

       -l, --local-lib DIR
	   Includes the	local::lib DIR in the module paths.

       -d, --dev
	   This	shows the developer versions (0.01_01) just as that instead of
	   eval()ing them.

	       mversion	-d Test::More
	       mversion	--dev Test::More

       -q, --quiet
	   Usually if a	module does not	exist, "mversion" will warn about it.
	   This	allows you to silent those warnings and	just carry on.

	       mversion	-q This::Does::Not::Exist But::This::Does
	       mversion	--quiet	This::Does::Not::Exist But::This::Does
