How do I get a listing of the Perl modules currently installed on Webserve?

By executing the command perldoc perllocal in your Webserve account, you can find out what modules are already installed on the system.

Each time a module is installed on your system, it appends information like the following to a file called perllocal.pod. This pod file shows what, where, and when it was installed and the version. The following is part of the output you will get from the perldoc perllocal command:

  Tue Nov 13 15:08:24 2007: "Module" Test::Harness
   +   `installed into:  /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.8.8"
   +   `LINKTYPE: dynamic"
   +   `VERSION: 3.00"
   +   `EXE_FILES: bin/prove"
  Tue Nov 13 15:08:26 2007: "Module" ExtUtils::CBuilder
   +   `installed into: /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8"
   +   `LINKTYPE: dynamic"
   +   `VERSION: 6.36"
   +   `EXE_FILES: bin/instmodsh"

Each entry includes the module name, date and time it was installed, where it was installed, linktype (static or dynamic), version, and any executables included with the module.
