This modules looks for a specified module file under @INC, and if found, applies the MakeMaker regex /([\$*])(([\w\:\']*)\bVERSION)\b.*\=/
As the module observes, a lot of perl modules do not obey the perlstyle and other guides which recommend a version-numbering system compatible with the MakeMaker regex, and so a means of finding the version number even if it fails that regex would have been nice.
