in reply to modifying @INC other than use lib?
The advantage of using use lib is that it also adds the directory specific to the architecture.
- Make a dummy "pragma" module which simply lists the include directories you want:
This only shifts the problem, but you have the advantage of a simpler inclusion and, what's better, the fact that you don't have to change anything in your scripts, only in the local myInc package:# In myInc.pm, located in standard perl lib directory package myInc; use lib /path/to/my/special/lib; 1;# ... in your script use myInc; use GD; # or whatever in your local lib # ...
- given the fact that you're always using strict (aren't you?!?), you could put the use lib directly in strict.pm, but I've never suggested you to do that :)
Update: fixed 8-PM typo, thanks to eric256 for signaling!
Flavio (perl -e "print(scalar(reverse('ti.xittelop@oivalf')))")Don't fool yourself.
