Also bioperl.pod from bioperl-1.4 on CPAN reads "Bioperl 1.3" -- or did, 
earlier this week.

Speaking of which. What would be a perl one liner for determining the 
version of perl installed on a machine? My current method is:

perl -e 'use Bio::Perl 99.9;'

which generates:

Bio::Perl version 99.9 required--this is only version 1.5 at -e line 1.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at -e line 1.
One or more DATA sections were not processed by Inline.

but there must be a more direct way.
