( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

if I write some code consisting of several modules which are of no use for CPAN (or don't need it for several scripts), I like to keep them with the scripts in a directory structure like, e.g.

myscript/bin ..... scripts myscript/lib ..... modules myscript/lib/build . for building modules with h2xs myscript/source .. sourcefiles myscript/log ..... for logfiles myscript/doc ..... documentation myscript/work .... working dir(s) myscript/result .. output dir ....
or the like.

If I do it this way, I prefer loading modules the following way:

BEGIN { use FindBin (); use lib "$FindBin::Bin/../lib"; require ModulXY; } # BEGIN
Btw: I could use "use" instead of require, but since I hardly ever do namespace pollution, I somehow quite satisfied with require.

For building modules, I use h2xs if there's just a slight change that I could share it on CPAN, and keep several build directories and keep links (under Unix/Linux) from ./lib to the modules untill they are finished.

So far, my 2 cent...

Best regards,
perl -e "s>>*F>e=>y)\*martinF)stronat)=>print,print v8."
