How to set the path of cpan library in bash script

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

Hi All, I installed cpan module "File-Copy-Link-0.113" locally by using this command $ perl Makefile.PL PREFIX=~/perl_lib LIB=~/perl_lib in this folder /home/figo/perl_lib.

I have a bash script which needs to use this module and which comes default as " for module in File::Spec File::Spec::Link"

How i can set the path of the File::Spec and File::Speck::Link which is lying in /home/figo/perl_lib/File/Speck in the bash script? thanks

    If I've understood you correctly, then all you need to do is:

    export PERL5LIB=~/perl_lib

    The use of this environment variable is given in the perlrun manpage.

      thanks :) it worked .
