Hi experts,

Is there a way to add to @INC without modifying our existing scripts. This is because the directory of some of the libraries has moved to a different directory and as there are a lot of existing scripts, I would like to avoid modifying each one of them.

Would appreciate it if anyone could provide some pointers.

Cheers,
Ben

Hi bcheong,
You can either add the new paths to the PERL5LIB environment, or you can use the -I command line switch to add your new directories to @INC.

Cheers!

You could also recompile Perl and modify @INC permanently during the compile steps. Just run the 'Configure' program and it will prompt you for additional paths to add to @INC.

#!/usr/bin/perl
push @INC, "/var/www/cgi-bin";

replace /var/www/cgi-bin with whatever directory you need.

Hope it helps
