Create and Use a Local Lib/ for Perl Modules with Perl5lib


Development/Libraries/Perl

This module provides a quick, convenient way of bootstrapping a user-local Perl module library located within the user's home directory. It also constructs and prints out for the user the list of environment variables using the syntax appropriate for the user's current shell (as specified by the 'SHELL' environment variable), suitable for directly adding to one's shell configuration file.

More generally, local::lib allows for the bootstrapping and usage of a directory containing Perl modules outside of Perl's '@INC'. This makes it easier to ship an application with an app-specific copy of a Perl module, or collection of modules. Useful in cases like when an upstream maintainer hasn't applied a patch to a module of theirs that you need for your application.

On import, local::lib sets the following environment variables to appropriate values:

  • PERL_MB_OPT

  • PERL_MM_OPT

  • PERL5LIB

  • PATH

  • PERL_LOCAL_LIB_ROOT

When possible, these will be appended to instead of overwritten entirely.

These values are then available for reference by any code after import.
