blib(3pm)              Perl Programmers Reference Guide              blib(3pm)




NAME

       blib - Use MakeMaker's uninstalled version of a package


SYNOPSIS

        perl -Mblib script [args...]

        perl -Mblib=dir script [args...]


DESCRIPTION

       Looks for MakeMaker-like 'blib' directory structure starting in dir (or
       current directory) and working back up to five levels of '..'.

       Intended for use on command line with -M option as a way of testing
       arbitrary scripts against an uninstalled version of a package.

       However it is possible to :

        use blib;
        or
        use blib '..';

       etc. if you really must.


BUGS

       Pollutes global name space for development only task.
