Re^8: standard library to return system pathsby ablanke (Prior)
|on Jun 08, 2016 at 07:59 UTC||Need Help??|
be aware there is a difference between the system library path and the perl module path.
Perl always knows where it's modules are installed.
On your shell:perl -V
The output on linux could look like this:
If you can install CPAN modules, you can use them.
As I understand File::BaseDir (you refer to it in your question) is also not an core module, so someone installed it. Maybe the result of File::BaseDir on the windows machine is empty because it's not installed there.
