[Pdx-pm] require './file' vs. require 'file'

	I have a perplexing problem regarding a tool I've inhereted.

	In the code there is:

require './my_lib.pl';

	where ./my_lib.pl is a symlink to ../my/my_lib.pl.
	The full path to the actual file is:


	So, because I think the symlink system is stinky I would like to

use lib '/usr/local/apache/cgi-bin/my';


require 'my_lib.pl';

	but that causes the code to fail without error. Because the code
is full of eval()s it's not obvious how one would figure out where exactly
it's failing.

	Any idea why or how this could happen?
