Mmm... I just ran a test script and got a working version, but I can't get it to not display warning messages.

BEGIN { my $a = "c:/"; use lib "$a"; } use GetWords; print new GetWords;

The warning message (without -w swicth or 'use warnings'):

Empty compile time value given to use lib at C:\Documents and Settings\mt2k\De sktop\ line 3

eval reverse@{[lreP
=>q{ tsuJ\{qq},' rehtonA'
,q{\}rekcaH },' tnirp']}[1+1+

    Oh yeah.. that's funny. Get this - right as soon as the implicit BEGIN (via the use) is parsed inside the currently-being-parsed BEGIN block it is executed. So you're attempting to use $a in your nested BEGIN block prior to defining it. See?

    BEGIN { my $a = "c:/"; BEGIN { require "$a"; import "$a"; } }
