in reply to @INC Errors

@INC normally contains ., unless running in taint mode. @INC should never only contain ., which appears to be your problem. Something changed in your environment.

    This problem would be caused by an inability to access Perl's library directories. Maybe you don't have permission anymore, or maybe the directories are gone.

      Does perl remove from @INC at startup (or module load time) if it can't stat those directories? I've never seen that. Clever.

        It does for me with ActivePerl (which is a relocatable build).

    So how do I fix it?

      Figure out what changed in your environment. Check that the directories in perl -V exist and have permissions which allow you to read them.

        I get the following error when running perl -V: Can't locate in @INC (@INC contains: .).

        BEGIN failed--compilation aborted.
