NAME ^

pmall - show all installed versions and descs

SYNOPSIS ^

    pmall [-d] [-w] [-a] [-s]

pmall - show all installed versions and descs

DESCRIPTION ^

This program runs through all your installed modules and tells you what they're for and what version number they are at.

The following options are honored:

-v

give debug info

-w

warn about missing descriptions on modules

-a

include relative paths

-s

sort output within each directory

HISTORICAL NOTE ^

This program used to be called pmdesc and is included in The Perl Cookbook under that name. However, that name has been usurped by a simpler program.

For example, to find the versions of what is in your site-specific directory, the simpler pmdesc might be preferred:

    $ pmdesc `pminst -s | perl -lane 'print $F[1] if $F[0] =~ /site/'`
    XML::Parser::Expat (2.19) - Lowlevel access to James Clark's expat XML parser
    XML::Parser (2.19) - A perl module for parsing XML documents

KNOWN BUGS ^

This program takes a long time to run.

Some modules don't work right (CPAN.pm, ExtUtils) because of noisy things they do at compile time or poor formatting of the pod.
