( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I have a feeling the proposed solutions above don't give you the path relative to the module, but to the script. Cwd is the simplest solution though:
#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use Cwd qw(abs_path getcwd); print "This script is: ".abs_path($0)."\n"; print "Working dir is: ".getcwd()."\n";

but that won't tell you the path from the actual module.

For that, you'll need to hard code the path to the module (I think):

my $abs_filepath = abs_path("$module_dir/$relative_pilepath");
__FILENAME__ is your friend...

    [Cosmic37]: I'm wondering whether there is a specific/(or at least "usual") command or does one take a copy before undefining and then copy it back after slurping file into a string?
    [BarApp]: I need help accessing perl files. I need permission!!!
    [Cosmic37]: I wish thee a peachy life and express gratitude for considering my pathetic questions
    [erix]: record separator
    [Cosmic37]: Permissions are interesting earthlings. Did nature determine who gives permission and who asks permission. Who was the first to get permission? Are you not related to them as one big earthling family?
