    If you are trying to allow Perl to find modules that you are use'or require'ing, you can use lib ...
    use lib '/path/to/my/libs'; use MySpecialLib;

    There are a couple of ways depending on what you're trying to do: Perl has a '-I' pararamter which allows additional libraries to be included like this:
    Perl -I "root/cgi-bin/csr" myProgram.pl
    For those on Windows, beware that ActiveState Perl 5.005_3 has a bug that causes paths to be chopped at the first space. or if you don't want (or can't) pass parameters you probably want this:
    use 'root/cgi-bin/csr';
    as a last resort you might try:
    BEGIN { push @INC, 'root/cgi-bin/csr' };
    The BEGIN block is executed before the rest of the program.

    Have fun,
    Carl Forde
