( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
The advantage of using use lib is that it also adds the directory specific to the architecture.

Quick-and-very-dirty workarounds:

  • Make a dummy "pragma" module which simply lists the include directories you want:
    # In myInc.pm, located in standard perl lib directory package myInc; use lib /path/to/my/special/lib; 1;
    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 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 :)
The first solution seems the one to go if you want to give these headless advices a try. I only hope merlyn's hammer won't be too heavy on me!

Update: fixed 8-PM typo, thanks to eric256 for signaling!

Flavio (perl -e "print(scalar(reverse('ti.xittelop@oivalf')))")

Don't fool yourself.
