in reply to ADD directory to @INC using a string variable

Try use lib hardcoded_path_name;. The use directives are executed at compile time, before the variables used in the code are set.

Else you could set your variable in a BEGIN block, just prior to using it.

    I cannot use a hardcoded path, it is a varying path based on the user. $path = user's cwd/somepath/ Regards, Siddharth
      use lib './somepath/';
      BEGIN { my $path = 'somepath'; push @INC, $path; }
      or why not just let the user set his/her PERL5LIB environment variable?
