Subject: PPM.pm:InstallPackage() bug triggered if $ENV{HOME} valid
Strawberry perl portable 5.10 (release compiled at Feb 23 2009) PPM.pm's InstallPackage() downloads and unpacks a package, and then looks like it tries to chdir(undef) and falls back to chdir($ENV {HOME}). If $ENV{HOME} is set, the rest of the install fails; if not, the chdir fails and installation proceeds as normal. See http:// www.perlfoundation.org/perl5/index.cgi?ppm , under 'Gotchas'. Reproduce: in cmd.exe, set HOME=<some valid value>, then cd to <strawberry-perl-portable-top>\perl\bin, and run .\ppm.bat install <package> Workaround: set HOME= before running ppm.bat.

IMO: This should use $ENV{HOME} // $ENV{USERPROFILE}. I may fix this for October 2009... stay tuned.
I encountered it in 5.8.9.3. At line 387 in C:\strawberry\perl\vendor\lib\PPM.pm, $1 becomes empty and chdir(undef) happens as KRISHPL writing. It seems to need to use a named variable instead of $1. Attached file is diff output of my modification.

Pstched in r11370, will be fully fixed when the April 2009 versions arrive.
