NAME
       blib - Use MakeMaker's uninstalled version of a package

SYNOPSIS
        perl -Mblib script [args...]

        perl -Mblib=dir script [args...]

DESCRIPTION
       Looks for MakeMaker-like 'blib' directory structure starting in dir (or current directory) and working back up
       to five levels of '..'.

       Intended for use on command line with -M option as a way of testing arbitrary scripts against an uninstalled
       version of a package.

       However it is possible to :

        use blib;
        or
        use blib '..';

       etc. if you really must.

BUGS
       Pollutes global name space for development only task.
