in thread 'do' command is dead? Surely not?

That sounds false, cause . was last in @INC for a long time, so from /tmp is not a situation that could have happened

    Maybe not but some other (optional) module that was not present in the original system could still be loaded from /tmp.

      the program would have to be trying to load said module first ... its expecting it to exist
        Yes, the program does expect the module to exist. But that expectation can be incorrect.

        I don't know about you, but I frequently get Perl code (usually things written by coworkers...) which doesn't properly document its dependencies, resulting in attempts to load modules which aren't installed on the machine.

[Corion]: Hmm - I think I'm not really making friends at $work. "We" (as in $current_project) should enter some Changes into the system, and I just told the Transition Manager, who should do that or tell somebody to do that to learn the system in which they ...
[Corion]: ... should create that Change.
[Corion]: The nicer approach maybe would have been to indirectly tell them that, or tell them who could teach them...
[erix]: No More Mr Nice Guy !
