The array @INC contains the list of places to look for Perl scripts to be evaluated by the do EXPR, require, or use constructs. It initially consists of the arguments to any -I command line switches, followed by the default Perl library, probably /usr/local/lib/perl, followed by ".", to represent the current directory.

use lib '/mypath/libdir/';
use SomeMod;
