-d
finds the first perl version where a module has been released by date, and not by version number (as is the default).
--diff
Given two versions of perl, this prints a human-readable table of all module changes between the two. The output format may change in the future, and is meant for humans, not programs. For programs, use the Module::CoreList API.
-? or -help
help! help! help! to see more help, try --man.
-man
all of the help
-v
lists all of the perl release versions we got the CoreList for.
 
If you pass a version argument (value of $], like 5.00503 or 5.008008), you get a list of all the modules and their respective versions. (If you have the "version" module, you can also use new-style version numbers, like 5.8.8.)
 
In module filtering context, it can be used as Perl version filter.
-r
lists all of the perl releases and when they were released
 
If you pass a perl version you get the release date for that version only.
--feature, -f
lists the first version bundle of each named feature given
--upstream, -u
Shows if the given module is primarily maintained in perl core or on CPAN and bug tracker URL.
As a special case, if you specify the module name "Unicode", you'll get the version number of the Unicode Character Database bundled with the requested perl versions.

EXAMPLES

    File::Spec 0.83 was released with perl 5.007003
    $ corelist File::Spec 0.89
    File::Spec 0.89 was not in CORE (or so I think)
