3.1. Loading libraries and $PERL5LIB
When you run a Perl program it looks for libraries (aka
modules/packages/classes/dependencies) in the paths specified in
before looking in the standard library.
$ echo $PERL5LIB /usr/local/ddg/lib:/opt/perlbrew/libs/perl-5.26.1@mylib/lib/perl5
To load a library from a custom location modify your
variable. For example, to always load dependencies from the
lib directory in
your current project:
$ export PERL5LIB=./lib:$PERL5LIB $ echo $PERL5LIB ./lib:/usr/local/ddg/lib:/opt/perlbrew/libs/perl-5.26.1@mylib/lib/perl5
Note that order is important.
