in reply to How to change @INC permanently?

It's in the binary of /usr/bin/perl. Either recompile Perl, or carefully edit the binary (not necessarily possible if you need to add path items).

    Thank you kindly, Merlin.

      A somewhat simpler approach for a "semi-permanent" solution may be to set the PERL5LIB environment variable to the directories you want to always make available. See perlrun.

      -xdg

        set the PERL5LIB environment variable
        In my experience, ensuring that an environment variable is set for every possible process that might execute my script is pretty unlikely, not to mention that a setuid script ignores that variable.

        He could begin his script with
        #!/usr/bin/perl -mlib=/path
