in thread Can't locate WWW/Mechanize/Firefox.pm in @INC

Don't guess! The answer based on a guess has very little value as a response to a question from someone who's trying to help.

Try the command suggested in Re: Can't locate WWW/Mechanize/Firefox.pm in @INC and then tell us what it does (more on this -- how to execute -- is below).
And don't rely on external tools (either Check_INC.pl, which you don't show) nor where to tell you something about Perl that you can learn from your own Perl.

$ perl -v ; perl -e "print join \"\n\", @INC" can both help, or, use this little piece of code, which appeared here recently:

#! /usr/bin/perl use 5.016; # adjust to suit the version identified from the + C:> prompt with <c>perl -v
use ExtUtils::Installed; my $module; my $inst = ExtUtils::Installed->new(); my (@modules) = $inst->modules(); foreach $module (@modules) { say "$module"; } </c>

The die $^X command gets executed from your command prompt, "C:\>" by preference (mine, an idiosyncracy) like this:
perl -E "die $^X;"
which will print something like this: C:\Perl\bin\perl.exe at -e line 1. where the part before the "(period)exe" is your path to perl.

... but at a quick glance, it appears from the content of your second code block that you're executing Oracle's 5.8 version of Perl... in which case, perhaps you didn't ask (Active State?) to add 5.16 to your path. So check your path too... is there an instance of Perl that's not in an Oracle directory?

Oh yes; @Annonymous Monk doesn't live here. But you can address Monks by name, by [name]... for example, to say your name to call you attention to this, I use that form of address: Pavan Renjal

Update: http://www.perl.com/pub/2002/05/14/mod_perl.html (under the heading "use(), require(), do(), %INC and @INC Explained" may be illuminating.

    ww Thanks for the reply! I have executed the codes and i got the following results. 1.Perl version

    4. The 4th code gave me the following results:
    C:\>perl -E "die $^X;" C:\Perl\bin\perl.exe at -e line 1.

    For the next query "... but at a quick glance, it appears from the content of your second code block that you're executing Oracle's 5.8 version of Perl... in which case, perhaps you didn't ask (Active State?) to add 5.16 to your path. So check your path too... is there an instance of Perl that's not in an Oracle directory?"

    Please help me understand this. How do i check the path? "is there an instance of Perl that's not in an Oracle directory?" - How do i check this? Thanks for the link related to INC. Thanks for all your time and help!

      path with no arguments from your command prompt will show the existing path. you can add to it, change it, etc. Your "2." seems to say that the Oracle @inc may be higher (earlier) in your path than the 5.16 path... or that 5.16 doesn't have a proper path to your modules (which should be in a series of directories subordinate to the dir named Perl.

      As to an additional instance of Perl, you've answered that with perl -v which says immediately that 5.16 was executing. So, you've already checked that.

      But we still don't have quite enough info to give you an Rx for a cure.
