Subject: uninitialized value $path in length
For some reason, running minicpan, I get lots of these warnings from my cron jobs: Use of uninitialized value $path in length at /home/david/perl/5.10.0/lib/5.10.0/File/Path.pm line 97 Since that line is just "next unless length($path)" it seems like it should be changed to "next unless defined($path) && length($path)" -- David
