with -I option , you can add files to @INC at run time.
#!/usr/bin/perl -I/path-to-new-library/

    That's actually before compile-time. Good thing too, because it would be useless to change @INC at run time.

      I change @INC at run-time all the time.

      What you're probably confused about is that 'use Some::Module' normally happens at compile-time (actually it happens in a virtual BEGIN block) and that is how most people interact with @INC. However, you can defer useing modules by doing it in a string-eval, or you can use require, or do.

      And there are all kinds of evil tricks you can play by putting code-refs into @INC.
