in reply to Using Modules in a local directory

Hi Speedfreak,

If you put a perl module in the directory you call perl from, let's say /home/jeroenes/work as in:

cd /home/jeroenes/work perl /var/scripts/ mylocalfile.txt
Than perl searches the current/calling dir: /home/jeroenes/work for .pm modules. The use Blah::Foo; statement is seen as "look for in ./Blah/". So use Blah::Foo; will fetch /home/jeroenes/work/Blah/ for you.

As for your second question, see the docs of ExtUtils::MakeMaker. In short, add a LIB directive to the commandline: perl LIB=/home/jeroenes/work"

Hope this helps,
