in thread Is ActivePerl repositories go free again?

Hey! That's something new that I've never considered! Must give it a try. One thing that I don't want to do extra module way is because I have to use that module everywhere ( scripts and other modules ) and I am 200% sure I don't want to deal with this mess. But this trick make the change transparent! Thanks for the advise! Love it! =D

    You can even place your in a custom directory (or just link it thereto), e.g. X:\myconfig\perl and set PERL5OPT to -IX:\myconfig\perl -Msiteconfig, so you don't have to mess with installation paths at all.

    On my system (Linux):

    # file /tmp/perl/ print "loaded " . __FILE__ . " from $INC[0]\n"; shift @INC; # done with files in /tmp/perl 1;
    qwurx [shmem] ~> env PERL5OPT='-I/tmp/perl -Msiteconfig' perl -e 1 loaded /tmp/perl/ from /tmp/perl

    The shift @INC restores the original @INC perl lib search path array. Comment it out if that config directory contains more of your custom modules which should be found first. This is all in perlrun, which is worth reading thoroughly.

    perl -le'print map{pack c,($-++?1:13)+ord}split//,ESEL'
      It worked! Both way worked! Thank you soooooo much!! Now I can seriously consider to leave AS Perl! =D
