Module::Info and

[ #12545 ]

I wrote a little script the other day to extract the version number from a given Perl module. I was written to both support installed modules and module containing files.

Somebody directed my attention to the Module::Info module, which seemed to support all the stuff I needed - and it did apart from the extraction of the name from the module when just parsing a module containing file (the documentation also states so).

But since I had allready implemented this feature in my code, I decided to write the author with a patch which implements the missing part.

Heh, the joy of open source...
