(Text::PDF::FlateDecode) (again,)

dunnyman has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

This is my problem:

Failed to open filter FlateDecode (Text::PDF::FlateDecode)

This is my @INC

/applications/dstio/bin/perl_modules/lib/site_perl/5.8.2/aix-thread-mu +lti<br> /applications/dstio/bin/perl_modules/lib/site_perl/5.8.2<br> /usr/opt/perl5/lib/5.8.2/aix-thread-multi<br> /usr/opt/perl5/lib/5.8.2<br> /usr/opt/perl5/lib/site_perl/5.8.2/aix-thread-multi<br> /usr/opt/perl5/lib/site_perl/5.8.2<br> /usr/opt/perl5/lib/site_perl<br>

The code fragment is:

my $filt = eval { require Text::PDF::Filter; my $pkg = "Text::PDF::$filtername"; $pkg->new; };

the Text::PDF and CAM::PDF are installed under the second path, but PERL doesn't seem able to find the filtername ... which does exist.

Help! The Text::PDF::Filter module contains the Text::PDF::FlateDecode module, but nothing I do seems to invoke the beast. How do I know what paths are being used? How do I get it to work?

    The scripts I work with are bollox. Environment variables are blasted when one script is, not when the other is invoked. Rant rant rant.

    Environment variables.

[1nickt]: Ah, I see. I did read some gamer mag reviews, and yes, they lamented the fact that laptops with no discrete video card are sold as "gaming" hardware.
[1nickt]: But, they do have red keyboard backlighting! And gargoyles on the front, or words like "Maxxx" here and there. They know their demographic!
[1nickt]: True gamers don;t buy Dells, HPs, or Lenovos, I think ;-)
[ambrus]: The keyboard I bought doesn't have backlighting. I specifically had to select for that, because so many keyboards these days have lights. Why would I want lights in the keyboard? I want lights in the room, such as on the ceiling, not in the keyboard.
choroba has a small USB lamp
[ww]: ++ all (phony labels re "gaming"
[1nickt]: ambrus perhaps you know where the keys are?
