Great summary of module basics!

Here's a little code I came up with to add my module location to @INC (in a cgi environment) by dynamically determining the document root for the script. It works on the remote apache server and when testing locally in windows. It might be of some interest:

BEGIN { # get doc root from %ENV # implicitly declare file root path if %ENV not fount my $doc_root = $ENV{DOCUMENT_ROOT} || 'C:/Users/User/Documents/website/sites/mysite'; # change \ to / $doc_root =~ s/\\/\//g; # add module folder location $doc_root .= "/cgi-bin/cms/"; # add module location to @INC push(@INC,$doc_root); }

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
