in reply to Conditional 'use lib'

The work is done inside of's import method, so you might try:

BEGIN { use Sys::Hostname; require lib; if (hostname() eq '') { lib->import('/alternate/libdir'); } else { lib->import('/default/libdir'); } }

The advantage of this over the unshift trick is that you'll get architecture-dependent paths added, as well.

    Just found an even easier way, which seems to work for me: my $module = "ROX::Filer"; eval "use $module"; die "couldn't load $module : $!n" if ($@); See
