    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

      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.

        I like to give people options. Not everyone feels comfortable recompiling perl. Given that the OP was looking in Super Search to find out about use lib, it seemed to me that a recompile or editing the binary might be the proverbial atomic bomb to swat a fly.
