For my work application, the modules are installed into an installation-specific directory (which is never in perl's lib hierarchy). They are all named with an application prefix ("NVC::" in this case), but that's more to avoid confusion in coding than confusion on the filesystem.

Scripts tend to have an early:

use lib 'lib'; # fixup on install
which is fixed up at installation to point to the installation's lib directory. (If you run an uninstalled script directly from the CVS checkout directory the unmodified line will also do the right thing, as long as you are in the top-level directory to start with.)

This system works very cleanly for us, and we have some 40 or so installations of the application (scattered across various revisions of the code) all happily coexisting on a single machine.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
