in thread Full path to the current file?

This works; thanks! The 'funky' aspect to which I referred is that when invoked from a script, the module's __FILE__ is 'XML/'. When invoked from the command line:

perl -e "use XML::Foo; $x = new XML::Foo;'

its __FILE__ is reported as '/XML/' -- which is clearly bogus.

It has been suggested that the latter behaviour is due to Red Hat's patches for Fedora Core 8.

Whatever, you've given me the solution. I guess I'll just have to wait and see if it works in all cases, or if there are edge conditions where it goes blooey.
