Perl has two pseudo-constants describing the current location in your source
code, __FILE__ and __LINE__. Dir::Self adds __DIR__, which expands to the
directory your source file is in, as an absolute pathname.
This is useful if your code wants to access files in the same directory, like
helper modules or configuration data. This is a bit like FindBin except it's
not limited to the main program, i.e. you can also use it in modules. And it
actually works.
