Functions not importing when module in folder

Anonymous Monk has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I'm trying to re-use some code by using a module, and it seems to work until I try to put it in a folder.

For example, when my the and are in the same directory (i.e. /path/to/dir/ and /path/to/dir/, it works fine when I put use My_Module; in

But as soon as I move to a directory IN the app directory (i.e. /path/to/dir/My_Module_Folder/, the functions don't seem to import. In, I am putting use My_Module_Folder::My_Module;, and it compiles fine, but I get an error when I try to use a function from My_Module.

Does anyone have any idea how to fix this? I can move the module file to the app dir, but I would like to keep things organized.

    After changing the path, you also have to change the package name to My_Module_Folder::My_Module. It might be more appropriate not to change the package name, though, but use lib instead.
