( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
you want a module that can be run as a script, but the search paths for scripts (OS determined) and modules (Perl determined) are different. if it's in a place where it could be run as a script, then it can't be loaded as a module w/o hackery. ditto for the reverse, if it's in a place where it could be loaded as a module (use Foo;) then it's not in a place where it could be called as a script.
Jigga-what? There is nothing saying that @INC and your PATH environment variable have to be disjoint. I'm not saying that it's a good idea to have overlap (nor am I saying that it's a bad idea; kinda titilating, actually), but you could put a new directory that is understood to contain such hybrid scripts at the end of both @INC and PATH:
push @INC, "/path/to/hybrids" setenv PATH $PATH:/path/to/hybrids export PATH=$PATH:/path/to/hybrids ...
You get the idea.

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
