which perl module to include to use string length function?

HI all,
I'm writing a perl script to automate VM UUID transformation into a format used by our ServiceNow CMDB/discovery.

Anyone know which perl module to include to use the string length function?

Alternately, how would I determine which perl modules exist that are available to include, vs. which functions each module contains?

thanks in advance,
Tracy Wiseman, software engineer, Silicon Valley

For the length function you don't need any module. In general if you are looking for modules and their docs look at

You can search the archive and probably will find a lot of useful resources.
