in reply to Determining the directory the running script is in

How about

use File::Basename 'dirname'; use Cwd 'abs_path'; my $script_dir = abs_path(dirname($0));

[choroba]: I usually do this with presentations
[Corion]: But now I think statically (re)generating the Pod tests is a saner approach, and likely I'll regenerate the tests either in Makefile.PL or from xt/ but have them live below t/
[choroba]: I keep the snippets in files of their own, and use a Makefile to syntax highlight them and insert them into slides, while also running them and inserting the output if required
[Corion]: choroba: Ooooh - I didn't think of that! I write my presentations as POD and if it "roughly" looks like Perl code, I should also syntax-check that...
[haukex]: Yes sorry I don't run them all the time, my POD tests are only run as author tests (and are excluded when I'm using Devel::Cover)
[Corion]: choroba: Hmm - no, I keep the snippets inline, but as my framework also has support for capturing output etc., maybe I should do the same...
[Corion]: haukex: Yes, that approach is sane, and it heals the fragility of Pod parsers in a nice way while still syntax-checking stuff
[choroba]: Unfortunately, none of it is online
[haukex]: I figured that POD tests make sense, but only as author tests
[choroba]: I mean, the slides are, but not the makefile with scripts to create them
