Modify the contents of @INC

4 New Member
I can't seem to figure out how to modify the contents of @INC. I want to tell perl to look in a different directory when searching for modules. Any thoughts?

if you look at the online perldoc, this is what is stated
perldoc -q INC

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. How do I add a directory to my include path (@INC) at runtime?
  2.  
  3.        Here are the suggested ways of modifying your include path:
  4.  
  5.            the PERLLIB environment variable
  6.            the PERL5LIB environment variable
  7.            the perl ‐Idir command line flag
  8.            the use lib pragma, as in
  9.                use lib "$ENV{HOME}/myown_perllib";
  10.  
  11.        The latter is particularly useful because it knows about machine dependent architectures.  The lib.pm pragmatic module was first included with the 5.002 release of Perl.

Thanks that works. However now a new problem. Spent 5 hours searching google and online docs but ... you know the drill

I am running IIS6 and last week all my scripts ran fine. Something changed because out of the blue all my scripts started saying "Cant locate XXX.pm in @INC" I used the lib to fix that and now I get "The specified CGI application misbehaved by not returning a complete set of HTTP headers."

All my scripts print out "Content-type: text/html\n\n" before anything else so I thought this error was a result of installing PHP but I still get this even after I removed PHP.

Thanks
Bob

If a file has a .inc extension, or if it has a .inc.php extension, is it treated differently by the php interpreter? Or is it just a convention? I've been calling my included files filename.php and it doesn't seem to hurt anything. Is it wrong to do that? E
