I am experiencing an issue where I can set PERL5LIB via shell

export PERL5LIB='/my/local/lib'

but if I run this script with the same user it does not what am I missing here this is pretty cut and dry!?

My goal is to clear PERL5LIB and set a couple local libs

#!/bin/bash

export PERL5LIB='/my/local/lib1:/my/local/lib2';

Thanks

What do you mean it does not?
Did you want PERL5LIB to persist after the shell has exited?
If so, did you run it with . or as a child process?

Yes I want to maintain PERL5LIB for the user running the script.

I run the program by issuing

#./program.sh

I then test to see if it is held with
#env|grep -i 'perl'

issuing command from shell maintains change, issuing via bash script does not.

run it by issuing
.  program.sh
or
source program.sh

issuing via bash script as
./program.sh
runs in a child process, and when the child exits, its environment is gone
