in thread two lib folders

Is this saying I could make multiple use libs?
use lib "/path/to/1/"; use lib "/path/to/2/";

    Yes, or you could combine them into one list:

    use lib ('/path/to/1/', '/path/to/2/');

    Each time you do a use lib adds those directories in the list to the @INC array.

      that needs to be
      use lib ('/path/to/2/', '/path/to/1/');
      To be consistent with the above post of
      use lib "/path/to/1/"; use lib "/path/to/2/";
      Full demo:
      [davidrw@host davidrw]$ perl -le 'use lib qw(/path/to/1/); use lib qw( +/path/to/2/); print join " ", @INC[0..1]' /path/to/2/ /path/to/1/ [davidrw@host davidrw]$ perl -le 'use lib qw(/path/to/1/ /path/to/2/); + print join " ", @INC[0..1]' /path/to/1/ /path/to/2/

        Good point! use lib internally reverses the list passed into the import() function. This allows import() to prepend the entire list onto @INC in the same order as shown on the use lib line. Subtle.
