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 start-
       ing in dir (or current directory) and working back up to
       five levels of '..'.

       of testing arbitary scripts against an uninstalled version
       of a package.
