When check the version of Devel::Cover installed on my machine I got the values but it gave a bit too much output. Can it be reduced to just the version number ? Show quoted text
>perl -MDevel::Cover -e'print

I don't think there's much that can easily be done about this without removing other useful behaviour. As of 0.27, in response to your other ticket, a simple require will not execute any of the code coverage code, so the version can be discovered with this mantra: perl -le 'require Devel::Cover; print $Devel::Cover::VERSION' I'll set the ticket to resolved, but feel free to reopen it if this solution is unsatisfactory for some reason. Thanks for the report.
