the documentation for the module CPAN (man CPAN) suggests that​:
  ... you could list all modules that need updating​:
  perl -e 'use CPAN; CPAN​::Shell->r;'

When I run just that it suggests that the version I have
installed may be out of date (since the latest has
a greater version number what I have installed)

Package namespace installed latest in CPAN file
Devel​::Peek 0.95 0.96 ILYAZ/modules/Devel-Peek-0.96.tar.gz

Since it is 'known' (it took me a while to learn this, of course)
that the CPAN Devel​::Peek should not be installed over the
CORE Devel​::Peek, is there a way to build this knowledge into
