Hi there. I have two package files: and

Both are located in the same directory, and I'm using "use lib" to point to that directory. contains the code

use lib "...module_directory..."; $VERSION = 0.01; @ISA = qw(Exporter Cloud);
My main program contains the same use lib line. When I "use Cloud" from the program it finds it just fine, but when I "use Lens" I get: Can't locate package Cloud for @Lens::ISA at... There must be something obvious that I'm missing. Thinking the "use lib" line wasn't doing what I thought it was, I've also tried moving the files to my current directory so they'd be in @INC, but that didn't fix it.

I'm losing my hair fast enough as it is without this making me pull it out :)

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.
