-------- Original Message -------- Subject: RE: Patch Date: Thu, 14 Feb 2008 16:54:35 -0700 From: Roberts, Dennis <> To: '' <> References: <> It was necessary to modify ExtUtils::Install in order to get it to work with setuid scripts. Sorry I didn't catch this sooner. Thanks, Dennis ------------------------------------------------------------------------ *From:* Roberts, Dennis *Sent:* Thursday, February 14, 2008 11:57 AM *To:* '' *Subject:* Patch Here's a patch that allows the user to create a distribution that installs some setuid executable files and some plain executable files. I haven't tested this on any operating system other than Linux, and I haven't considered the implications on operating systems that are not Unix variants. I thought that I'd provide the patch anyway, though, in case someone else found it useful. Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks, Dennis -- 100.
