Subject: Uses deprecated perl-4-era shellwords.pl
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 318b
As discussed at <http://www.nntp.perl.org/group/perl.perl5.porters/2011/09/msg177310.html> CGI.pm, which is included in the perl distribution, uses shellwords.pl: <http://perl5.git.perl.org/perl.git/blob/HEAD:/cpan/CGI/lib/CGI.pm#l3533> This is deprecated as of perl 5.14, so it should probaly not be used in CGI.pm.

Wow. I had no idea. Definitely worth fixing. Is there a standard recipe to follow to replace shellwords.pl with a more modern replacement? Mark

Google suggests <http://perldoc.perl.org/Text/ParseWords.html> but I'm definitely not an expert on this subject! Cheers, Dominic. -- Dominic Hargreaves | http://www.larted.org.uk/~dom/ PGP key 5178E2A5 from the.earth.li (keyserver,web,email)
It appears that a fix has been merged at <https://github.com/markstos/CGI.pm/pull/10>
This was released some time ago. Thanks.
