Subject: README installation instructions are incorrect
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 419b
Text from README: --- HOW DO I INSTALL IT? <removed some text> If this doesn't work for you, try: cp lib/CGI.pm /usr/local/lib/perl5 --- But actually that is not enough, because CGI.pm itself uses CGI::Util and some functions require CGI::Cookie as well. So that trick can lead to different kinds of issues, from non-compiling CGI to even nastier stuff if you simply copy CGI.pm over an existing (older) version.

You are correct. That's an outdated approach, and the docs should be amended. Thanks for the report! Mark
Thanks for the suggestion. The README has been patched in git now. Mark
Subject: patch released for CGI.pm
Thanks for the bug report. A patch for it appeared in 3.51, if not sooner. Resolving. Mark
