It's probably an odd question, but have you looked at autobundle?
We do it all the time when upgrading perl.
Simply go to command prompt and type perl -MCPAN -e shell and when it
comes up type autobundle.
It will then take a list of all the modules you have installed.
Install your new version of perl and then run
perl -MCPAN -e 'install xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx'
where xxxxxxx is the name of your Snapshot file, dropping the .pm on the
e.g perl -MCPAN -e 'install Snapshot_2004_05_26_00'
as I am doing now
