I know - that's quite logical - but the remedy (absolute path) doesn't work.

I have tried to use both absolute and relative paths. I tried to set
absolute path via $ENV and use lib - this doesn't help either. Perl seems to
be searching in its own install directory for SWISH::ParseQuery.

Note that the use lib path whish is set at install (in swish.cgi) doesn't
work at all - via cgi or ASP.

(or is it the other way around?)

All depends on what the web server is using for the current directory.

Are you using absolute paths?

No way.  use lib is a set of strings pre-pended to the module name.  You
can use a complete path to the file in a use lib statement.

  perldoc -f use
  perldod -f require (not use of $prefix in that example)

Unlikely.  My guess is you are using relative paths and when using ASP
you have a differert "current directory" than when using CGI.
