See the current Perl documentation for lib:blib.
Here is our local, out-dated (pre-5.6) version:
blib - Use MakeMaker's uninstalled version of a package
perl -Mblib script [args...]
perl -Mblib=dir script [args...]
Looks for MakeMaker-like 'blib' directory structure starting in dir (or current directory) and working back up to five levels of '..'.
Intended for use on command line with -M option as a way of testing arbitary scripts against an uninstalled version of a package.
However it is possible to :
use blib; or use blib '..';
etc. if you really must.
Pollutes global name space for development only task.
