At the beginning of your script, add a lib statement with the path like so: #!/usr/bin/perl use lib "/perl/foo/lib"; use GD; Or, if you want to permanently modify your @INC, set the PERL5LIB environment variable in your shell of choice. (This is straight out of the Perl Cookbook, so take it or leave it. I don't know much about shell scripting.) # syntax for sh, bash, ksh, or zsh $ export PERL5LIB=/perl/foo/lib # syntax for csh or tcsh % setenv PERL5LIB /perl/foo/lib Good luck. -- Andy.
