"." means the current work directory, not the script's directory.

use lib qw(.);
should be
use FindBin qw( $RealBin ); use lib $RealBin;

    Hello ikegami,

    Thanks for that! I had a hard time trying to think of a situation in which the current working directory would be different to the script’s directory (in the absence of explicit calls to chdir, of course). Finally, the penny dropped: if I invoke a script foo/bar/ from the foo directory:

    perl bar/

    the script’s directory is foo/bar, but the current working directory is still foo!

    Thanks again,

    Athanasius <°(((><contra mundum Iustus alius egestas vitae, eros Piratica,

      Yes, relpath/prog[1] and /abspath/prog[2], but even just prog[3]

      1. If relpath doesn't refer to the CWD.
      2. If /abspath doesn't refer to the CWD.
      3. If the $PATH entry used doesn't refer to the CWD.

    Regardless, if the difference is that the class is in a separate file, that would be super weird.
