I use:

use FindBin qw($Bin);

$Bin is set to the value of the script's path.

    Even better (for Unix), you can try one of the following...

    $var = `/usr/bin/pwd`; # put the current dir in to $var
    

    print `/usr/bin/pwd`; # print the cwd to STDOUT

      this way you'll get dir the script is running _on_, and not the path script is running _from_
