Subject: CGI::Carp::fatalsToBrowser should return status 500 in case of error
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 627b
When using CGI::Carp qw(fatalsToBrowser), fatal errors are reported with a 200 OK status instead of a 500 Internal Server Error. Using : - ActiveState perl 5.8.8 through an easyPHP 2.0 (apache 2.2.3) server on Windows XP SP2, CGI 3.20 and CGI::Carp 1.29 (also tested with the latest distribution CGI::3.29 and CGI::Carp 1.29), - Perl 5.8.5 on a CentOS 4 x86_64 with apache 2.0.52, CGI 3.05 and CGI::Carp 1.28. - In both cases, perl script was executed as normal CGI scripts (no mod_perl). I added print STDOUT "Status: 500\n"; after the last else of fatalsToBrowser subroutine on line 577 and got it working as expected.
