in thread use lib $lib_dir not working

you probably never considered that I simply did not find other objections, maybe because I did not - and do not - understand part of the article correctly.
Accusing me of not having read the article at all is probably not the best way to make your point.

    You read the article that was given as explanation of why somebody had stopped using FindBin and completely failed to even find why that article would be considered a criticism of FindBin [and the thread contained a reply claiming that FindBin worked /better/ when chdir was done too soon]... and after that you wrote:

    well. the objections against FindBin I read so far always

    [and then went on to talk about how FindBin can /fail/ when chdir is done too soon]

    No, I didn't spend much time considering that. The quoted part reads exactly like you didn't read this objection. Even now, you repeat that you didn't think you had read an objection. So it is rather funny to then complain about me "accusing" you of not having read something when you note that you indeed thought that you hadn't read any such thing (and so wrote as if you had not /read/).

    And being pointed to an objection and reading it and finding no objection there and responding by talking about other objections is still "responding from ignorance". I personally consider responding from ignorance to be rather rude behavior. I gather not everybody feels that way.

    I won't actually accuse you not having considered something, trying to be more polite than that. But, in future, if you have no clue why a link was offered in justification, you might want to mention that as part of your response. Otherwise, when you indirectly express your belief that you didn't read an objection after a link to an objection was offered, somebody might think that you didn't bother to read the offered objection. Talk about "not the best way to make your point". :)
