( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Beloved brethren and sistren - I am getting an error when I try to use a module. It is not in the @INC array. I know where the module lives, but I don't know how to make Perl add that directory to @INC permanently. I understand from SuperSearch that I can use lib to add the directory at compile time, but I would like to simply add the directory once and for all. So the question is:

Where does the information for @INC live on a Linux system? I would be grateful for any help. Thank you.

UPDATE: Thank you for your help. I just spent seven hours on this issue, only to find that I had typed an incorrect character, and the problem had nothing whatsoever to do with @INC.

The good news is: 1) I learned a whole lot of stuff I normally wouldn't know; and 2) I will probably never make this particular mistake again.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
