Hi,
I was able to get all my SYSTEM path variable paths through $ENV{'PATH'};
How can I get USER environment variable paths as well Perl's path variable?

You can access an environment variable with

$ENV{'environment-variable-name'}

The only difference between the SYSTEM and USER environment variables is the SYSTEM ones are set for everybody, and the USER ones are set by user.

The $ENV{variable} will give you both SYSTEM and USER environment variables.
