in reply to setting path to LIB folder

If you have many perl scripts, or don't what to have to do a "use lib" in all your scripts you can also set the environment variable PERL5LIB to the directory containing your modules. eg.
export PERL5LIB=/path/to/lib/dir
Under unix (specificaly bash). If you put that in your .bash_profile then you dont have to worry about it again

    If this is for CGI scripts under Apache, and Taint isn't on, then you can set environment variables in your httpd.conf or .htaccess files, using the SetEnv directive. If your server setup allows it...

    I don't even know which directive-type you'd have to allow, except that it definitely won't work if AllowOverride is set to "None". ("In this case, the server will not even attempt to read .htaccess files in the filesystem.")
