At the start of your first-linked P5P thread, haukex:
Which means simply saying "welp, . isn't in @INC anymore" is going to leave
a vast number of broken scripts, most of them likely the ones whose users
are least knowledgable about perl (do 'config.pl' is very common baby perl,
I'm likely to solve it by automating a massive search-and-replace, inserting a './' before all filenames. (Might just back up first!). I think I know enough to know that the removal of '.' from @INC is best not over-ridden!
Many thanks to everyone who contributed to this. You are a wise and, yes, very attractive bunch of people!
