Dir::Self - search.cpan.org

Use Dir::Self to cope with the problem that FindBin should not be called more than once in a program.



FindBin for the location of the executable to find libraries relative to the executable.



use lib "$FindBin::RealBin/lib";



Dir::Self for modules that want to load other modules relative to themselves.



use lib __DIR__;



or



use lib __DIR__ . "/..";



ISSUE: is __DIR__ symlink aware - i.e. is it the equivalent of $FindBin::Bin or $FindBin::RealBin?
