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
use lib /path/to/my/special/lib;
# ... in your script
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')))")
