Appending to Perl's @INC array

The @INC array is a list of directories Perl searches when attempting to load modules. To display the current contents of the @INC array:

perl -e "print join(\"\n\", @INC);"


The following two methods may be used to append to Perl's @INC array:

1. Add the directory to the PERL5LIB environment variable.
2. Add use lib 'directory'; in your Perl script.

For more information, read the perlrun manpage or type perldoc lib.
