zakzebrowski has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hi All, I would like to have cpan modules installed into multiple directories on a single computer, as shown in the following example:

Is there an elegent way to do this? I know that for a single custom directory (eg. /app/common/cpan ), I could do something like: perl Makefile.PL PREFIX=/app/common/cpan LIB=/app/common/cpan , and then just use lib '/app/common/cpan' in my applications, but I tried doing a perl Makefile.PL PREFIX=/app/subapp/cpan:/app/common/cpan but that didn't work. Any ideas, or am I making this too hard on myself?
