Module Local

__joinnode Local

Local gives a local module namespace used for locally installed pike modules.

Modules are searched for in the directory pike_modules which can be located in the user's home directory or profile directory, or in any of the system directories /opt/share, /usr/local/share, /opt or /usr/local/.

The user's home directory is determined by examining the environment variable HOME, and if that fails the environment variable USERPROFILE.

If the environment variable PIKE_LOCAL_PATH is set, the paths specified there will be searched first.


If the user has installed the pike module Mine.pmod in the directory $HOME/pike_modules. it can be accessed as Local.Mine.
