( #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.

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
