  • Or use the corelist programm that comes with Module::CoreList:

    ~$ corelist Module::CoreList

    Module::CoreList  was first released with perl 5.009002
    • And don't you forget corelist accepts regexes as well (since 2.05):

      $ corelist /^Time/i

      Time::HiRes  was first released with perl 5.007003

      Time::Local  was first released with perl 5

      Time::gmtime  was first released with perl 5.004

      Time::localtime  was first released with perl 5.004

      Time::tm  was first released with perl 5.004

It just goes to show that names are important, particularly with CPAN, which essentially has no other way of navigating.
