in reply to BEGIN block and failure to initialize constants
Thanks for the replies. I like tobyink's solution for figuring out the path within the module - nice and clean. Unfortunately the Perl on my production machines is too elderly to support the /r substitution option. Looks like that came about in v5.14 and since I'm still being coerced into living with v5.10 I'll have to just leave a lovelorn comment showing how it could be prettier.
And Grandfather gives a great way to figure it out from the running script's perspective. Also handy!
As always, much appreciated =)
