pmdesc - print out version and whatis description of perl modules


Given one or more module names, show the version number (if known) and the `whatis' line, that is, the NAME section's description, typically used for generation whatis databases.


     $ pmdesc IO::Socket
     IO::Socket (1.25) - Object interface to socket communications
     $ oldperl pmdesc IO::Socket
     IO::Socket (1.1603) - Object interface to socket communications
     $ 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


This only works on modules. It should also work on filenames, but then it's a bit tricky finding out the package to call the VERSION method on.
