relative paths in catalyst

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

Brethren,

I am writing a Catalyst application, that needs to access several files. Currently I'm doing this by using absolute paths.

Now I would like to use path names that are relative to the directory where the applications main module (myApp.pm) is. How can I find this directory?

Update:
When I run the app under mod_perl,
cwd returns "\xampp\apache", $Findbin::Bin returns "\xampp\apache\bin" and $0 returns "\xampp\apache\bin\apache.exe",

    $c->config->{base} $c->config->{home} gives you the path, where YourApp lives. Perhaps you want $c->config->{home} . '/lib'?

    update: s/base/home/

      On my system, $c->config->{base} is empty :(

        O yes, sorry, it's $c->config->{home}.

    You can use the path_to helper:

    $c->path_to( 'bar', 'foo.txt' );

    See the docs for more info.
