Subject: Doesn't check for $HOME w/ fix

I have been tracking down a problem in a CGI script which causes a lot of entries such as this in error.log: [Sat Jan 22 06:07:21 2011] [error] [client 82.80.249.230] [Sat Jan 22 06:07:21 2011] search.cgi: Use of uninitialized value $_[0] in join or string at /home/nigelhorne/perlmods/lib/perl/5.10/File/Spec/Unix.pm line 95. After much searching I've tracked the problem to this line in Config::Auto::find_file: return $x if -e ($x = catfile($ENV{HOME},$filename)); The problem is the assumption that there is a $HOME environment variable, which isn't true in CGI, coupled with File::Spec::Unix's lack of sanity checking of its arguments. The simple fix is: return $x if ($ENV{HOME} && -e ($x = catfile($ENV{HOME},$filename)));
