in thread Date::Manip and taint mode

Corion, could you please elaborate on that? How, exactly, is taint-mode triggering the library not being loaded, an how, exactly, does your suggestion address it? No question that you surely are right ... but to an outsider with less knowledge than you have it isn't easy to see why.

    If you don't have PERL5LIB set in your environment, the problem is somewhere else.

    The variable @INC is the search path where Perl looks for modules. You can inspect the module search path by running perl -V on the command line.

    The value of @INC is influenced by the environment variable PERL5LIB, see perlrun and perlvar on @INC.

    The link I posted explains that the environment variable PERL5LIB is ignored under taint mode.

    The module lib is a convenient way to set up @INC (which PERL5LIB also sets) from within a Perl program.

      "The link I posted explains that the environment variable PERL5LIB is ignored under taint mode." Bingo ... didn't know that.
