in reply to Windows - dirname(__FILE__)

While your script don't chdir()
#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use Cwd; my $script_dirname = cwd; print "dirname: $script_dirname\n";

    Sadly, this won't work when script is called from another directory by full path:

    $ pwd /home/aitap $ cat /tmp/ #!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use Cwd; my $script_dirname = cwd; print "dirname: $script_dirname\n"; use Cwd 'abs_path'; use File::Basename; $script_dirname = dirname(abs_path($0)); print "script dirname: $script_dirname\n"; $ perl /tmp/ dirname: /home/aitap script dirname: /tmp
