Setting PATH within a Perl Script

Isn't there a simple way to add a dir to my PATH env? Seems like all
the examples I've seen so far all in one way or another is parsing the
current PATH and puts it all together, including the new dir.

Isn't there a simpler version of this whole process?

You want something simpler than...

I recently noticed the stylesheet link in an html page had the href set to a PHP script, as in: <LINK REL="stylesheet" href="some_css.php" type="text/css"> Presumably the file being referenced was actually an executable PHP script and not a css file that happened to have a .php extension.

Perhaps PYTHONPATH only applies to modules imported within a script. I didn't notice an option to python to...
