How do I check to see what Perl libraries are already installed on my system?

How do I check to see what Perl libraries are already installed on my system?

Is there a command I can issue that will list all the installed Perl libraries?

I don't know if there is a way to check what Perl libraries are installed throught a script, but maybe you can try this command if you are running an RPM distro
rpm -qa | grep perl
If you have a Debian based distro you can try apt-get and eventually Synaptic to search for installed packages.
