Subject: fails to see /usr/local/bin when running under a subshell
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 423b
When running pdf2ocr from PDF::OCR in a subshell File::Which could not locate tesseract which I had installed in /usr/local/bin. After some sleuthing, I discovered that at line 74 it fails to load it into @path, so I added this line after line 74: unshift @path, '/usr/local/bin' if -d '/usr/local/bin'; This, I freely admit, is a huge kludge. Maybe File::Spec has a problem instead? I'll report this there too. SSF

It sounds to me like your subshell isn't setting $PATH properly. There's nothing this module can do about that, and modifying $PATH inside the module would be very very wrong.
I do not believe this is a bug in this module.
