( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I was going to try to help flamey with his LWP::Simple problem. However, I had a different problem. I need to modify my @*INC, but have not been successful with it. Here are a couple of my attempts:
use v6; BEGIN{ push @*INC, 'C:\Rakudo\lib';} use LWP::Simple;
This gives the following error:
===SORRY!=== Confused at line 2, near "BEGIN{ pus" shell returned 1

I also tried:
use v6; push @*INC, 'C:\Rakudo\lib'; use LWP::Simple;
Which gives the following error:
===SORRY!=== Unable to find module 'LWP::Simple' in the @*INC directories. (@*INC contains: C:\Documents and Settings\HP_Administrator/.perl6/lib /Parrot-2.5.0/lib/parrot/languages/perl6/lib .)s ENTER or type command to continue shell returned 1

I am using Rakudo Star, installed on Windows using the MSI installer.

On my Linux installation trying to use the BEGIN block also gives an error. However, LWP::Simple is already in one of the @*INC paths.

Just a note that it is actually more intuitive to use unshift instead of push when modifying @*INC. This puts your added path at the beginning of @*INC, where it will be given precedence over "default" paths.
