blib(3)                Perl Programmers Reference Guide                blib(3)

       blib - Use MakeMaker's uninstalled version(1,3,5) of a package

        perl -Mblib script [args...]

        perl -Mblib=dir script [args...]

       Looks for MakeMaker-like 'blib' directory structure starting in(1,8) dir (or
       current directory) and working back up to five levels of '..'.

       Intended for use on command line with -M option as a way of testing
       arbitary scripts against an uninstalled version(1,3,5) of a package.

       However it is possible to :

        use blib;
        use blib '..';

       etc. if(3,n) you really must.

       Pollutes global name space for development only task.
