SPUG: geting the perl version

I want to do this: `/usr/bin/perl -V:version | /usr/bin/cut -d "'" -f
2` without using pipes or quotes; is that possible? (for some reason
my application isn't executing this correctly)

That is; I am looking for a simple way to get just the version number
wihout any padding. Something like "5.8.7" or "5.0.6" or whatever.

Perfection is just a word I use occasionally with mustard.
